Justina's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy sewing machines with which to equip her sewing workshop.

Justina's story

Justina is 57 years old. She is married to Victorino who is retired from the SNPP (Servicio Nacional de Promoción Profesional) where he was a wood turning instructor. The couple have two grown-up children who finished their respective university degrees. Justina worked with her mother since she was a young girl. She was her teacher for several years. She then got married and traveled to Argentina. As she didn't know how to do anything else other than sew, she started working in a factory. Over the years, and with some savings that she had made, she was able to return to her own country where she studied fashion design. She now owns a workshop with several well-established customers. She has more machines and more employees. Justina's wish is to have a nice workshop where she can offer a better service to her customers and better-quality goods.
