A loan of $350 helped to buy a three-wheel sales cart.

Justina's story

Justina started out selling soft-drinks from home but she stopped doing this because she didn’t earn enough income from it; for the last 2 years she has been selling cebiche (marinated fish dish) in an itinerant manner from a three-wheel sales cart that she sets up at one of the interprovincial bus stops, a very busy place. She’s involved in this activity during the morning and in the afternoon she prepares the next day’s product.

Justina has a son and is expecting a second baby. She lives in a rented house and her greatest wish is to build her own house, to provide her son with a good education and to continue to work in order to succeed.

Justina is a member of the Llapanchik, which means ” Everyone” in Quechua, communal bank and needs a 1000 new sol loan to buy a three-wheeler because the one she has now is pretty deteriorated.
