A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase materials to be used for an addition to her house.


Justina's story

Justina is a member of the communal bank Unión. She is 63 years old, and has been working with FINCA Peru for more than 13 years.

She has a store in her own house, and through her efforts her store has grown. The loans helped her finish the construction of her house and to educate her children. The training she received through the communal bank helped her to start her business, and to be responsible and reliable. She was able to buy a car and construct part of her house which she now rents. She remembers that her first loan enabled her to buy a little bit of sugar and rice. Now her store has greatly improved.

The loan she is now asking for will be used to build an addition to her house to be used for rental.
