Justina's story

Justina was born in the city of Cusco. She is 53 years old. She is a widow, but she has two children, and of course they all live in the city of Cusco but in the district of San Jerónimo.

Justina makes construction materials, such as for example bricks, blocks, and tile. She has a small workshop in her house in the district of San Jerónimo, and she belongs to the association of brick producers in the Picol area. She has already been doing this work for several years, and it is going very well for her. Justina needs the loan to purchase materials to continue making bricks, such as for example gasoline, wood, and wood waste products such as sawdust.

Justina is a member of the "Pillao" communal bank. This group is made up of 13 members who live in the province of Cusco in the district of San Jerónimo.
