Andre Bernard's story

This customer is 48 years old, married and father to three children, whose ages range from seven to 22 years old. Since he lacked the necessary support for his studies, he began a hairdressing activity for men. Given the high frequency of customers, the granting of this loan will allow him to boost his materials or work tools, by getting comfortable chairs, for instance, as well as hair clippers, an electric generator, a fan and a television.

He is planning to save a large part of his profits so that he can build a hairdressing salon for men and women, and, as such, generate employment for an unemployed youth. Caring and responsible for his children's future, he is fighting for their rights.
