San Judas Tadeo Group's story

This is the San Judas Tadeo group, which is made up of nine enterprising female members who work in a number of different businesses. They are on their 13th loan cycle. Carmen is 41 years of age, and has two children. For the past three years she has worked selling beauty products, and has requested a loan to buy perfumes, talcum powders, and creams.

Carmen’s dream is to finish building her house. She thanks the Kiva investors for allowing her to continue growing her business. Carmen is pictured in the forefront of the picture, the second from the left, wearing a white top with stripes and black pants.
