Justina's story

Justina belongs to the “Juntas y Unidas” (Together and United) Communal Bank with the Asociación Arariwa. The bank is in the city of Cusco, and she lives in that city. Cusco is a charming city that dates back to the time of the Incas. It is built on the site of the ancient Inca city.

Justina, age 46, is both mother and father to her three children. She sells construction materials like sand, stone, and gravel. She can be found in her small business everyday from seven in the morning until six at night. She has been in this business for several years. It is going very well for her thanks to the effort she puts into her work. Justina is a hard-working and responsible woman who gets her family ahead.

Justina hopes to receive $700 USD with her next loan. For now she wants to increase her business. She will buy construction material like sand, stone, and gravel, etc.

Justina is grateful for the opportunity she is being given with this loan and therefore pledges to make her repayments in a timely manner.
