She says that her biggest challenge is establishing her business and achieving her goals. One of her goals is to save up to buy a vehicle so that she can move about easily to buy merchandise for her business.

Justina is very excited to be receiving her third loan from Esperanza Internacional. She will invest her loan in her small store where she sells clothes, cosmetics, jewelry and women's personal care products. Her plans for the future are to increase her sales and to have a good business with a large variety of products. Her favorite activity is negotiating which is why she decided to work in sales as she gets to interact with her customers. She plans to continue investing most of her profits back into her business whilst helping contribute towards her household income. Her dream is to have a thriving and sustainable business.
