San Judas Tadeo Group's story

The communal bank “San Judas Tadeo” is made up of nine responsible and hard-working members. One of these is Carmen Rosa, 61, who is separated and has two children who she still has to support. Two years ago she started selling beauty products. This business allows her to build a better life for her children. She will use her latest loan to buy powders, cologne, cream and imitation jewelry. Her dream is to finish building her house, where she plans to have a space dedicated to selling her products. The “San Judas Tadeo” group is grateful to the people who make this loan possible. Carmen Rosa is at the back of the photo wearing a blue denim jacket.
