San Judas Tadeo Group's story

Ricardina, 57, is married and has three children. Currently she is a member of the San Judas Tadeo communal bank, a group made up of nine members who work in various business activities.

Ricardina works selling groceries and vegetables in a stall in the market. This business came up as a result of her children growing up, and she wanted to give them an education and a better quality of life. Ricardina worked very hard along with her husband. Today she has loyal customers. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has achieved a better income and has bought herself electrical appliances.

Ricardina requested a new loan to buy grocery merchandise (milk, noodles, sugar, etc.) to continue growing in her business.

Ricardina will achieve her goals with a lot of work and effort, and the EDAPROSPO loans will help her.

In this group: Ricardina Guillermina, Domitila Ciriaca, Esperanza, Eva Floriza, Modesta Blanca, Teodosia, Carmen Rosa, Carmen Luz, Gloria*
