Las Gaviotas Del Mar Group's story

Justina is a member of Las Gaviotas del Mar communal bank. She is 29 years old. She is married and has two children.

Justina met her fellow communal bank members in the neighbourhood, as they are all from the local area. This is Justina’s first loan with Pro Mujer. Justina hopes that, with this loan, she can expand her business (where she makes clothing) and one day buy a silk-screen printing machine. She would perhaps also like to hire staff to have a larger and fuller workshop. She could then manage the workshop and have time for her children.

Justina has a clothes-making business; she makes clothing for both sexes. She has a workshop in her own home. Justina learned to sew in the town of Cochabamba; she learned the trade after leaving school and it has allowed her to move forward. Justina now has five sewing machines. She will use this loan in order to buy different threads and materials to produce clothing items.

Justina’s aspirations for her and her family are to give her children the best education, to buy another house and car, and to expand her business as much as possible.
