Justa is 46 years old, is married, the mother of 6 children, studied until the sixt thraD. of primary school and lives in Av. Revolución Nº 198, Juli district, province of Chucuito, department of Puno.

For five years she has been a member of the Communal Bank “Niño San Salvador” of Juli. With the first loan of 300 soles (US $100) she bought 3 alpacas. When she was sixteen she had her husband and their first child. Her parents did not have the economic means and for that reason she could not continue to high school. At the age of 23 she started the business of buying and selling alpaca meat, which she sold in the supply market of Juli. She is also dedicated to fattening sheep. Currently she is continuing with her business.
With this loan of 2000 solesn(US $650), which will be repaid in 4 months, will increase her capital to buy a machine for cutting meat at a cost of S /. 2400 (US $ 770).
His greatest wish is to buy a freezer to improve her business and through this support her children in their studies.
