Justina's story

Justina is a member of the Unión II communal bank. She is 65 and the owner of a small store. She is the mother of 5 children and has been a member of Finca Perú for ten years. Thanks to the loans, Justina was able to make her house and rent it out. She has enlarged parts of her house and by renting has more income apart from her store. She is always learning more about the value of savings and progressing little by little. Now, with the loan she is asking for she will invest in buying beer, soft drinks and liquor.
