Justa
View original language description ↓
Justa Álvarez used to be an emergency nurse. She had to retire from doing this due to an accident she suffered which left her in poor health. Due to this, she had to find other ways to make a living. She began selling bakery goods/pastries out of her home. She has experience doing this since she would help her mother, who was a master when it came to baking.


Justa takes orders and also delivers her baked goods to the local schools in the area. She also works there as a temporary assistant/secretary in the evenings.


In her free time, she also provides all sorts of legal services such as birth certificates, college certificates, identification cards, etc. which provide her with some money.


At this time, Justa would like a loan to purchase main ingredients to bake a variety of pastries since school is starting, and this is the time when she makes the most money. She lives with her 2 sons and 2 grandchildren in the house she inherited from her father in-law.

Justa Álvarez, trabajó como enfermera auxiliar, actividad que tuvo que dejar a causa de un accidente que afectó mucho su salud. Por tal motivo tuvo que dedicarse a otra actividad, como es la repostería, trabajo que realiza desde su domicilio y aplicando las enseñanzas de su madre quien era maestra en técnicas de repostería.
Generalmente justa trabaja a pedido, llevando sus productos al centro educativo donde también cumple funciones de secretaria auxiliar del magisterio en el turno de la noche.
En su tiempo libre se dedica a realizar todo tipo de tramites, como ser certificados de nacimiento, títulos de bachiller, cédulas de identidad y otros que le representan siempre un ingreso pequeño.
Actualmente Justa precisa de capital para poder incrementar la variedad de sus productos en repostería, la compra de insumos es vital para poder dar continuidad a su negocio, puesto que la temporada de inicio de clases esta cerca, y es una temporada ideal para generar recursos para su subsistencia, tomando en cuenta que sus dos hijos y sus dos nietos viven con ella en la casa que les dejó su suegro.
