RECIPIENT: Justina Tarplah – Age 21

EMPOWERED BY: Shelly Dupre

Justina Tarpleh is a 21 year old single mother of one. Justina and her 5 year old son had recently moved to a new neighborhood. She used to sell cooked food until she came down with a serious sickness and was forced to use all of her business money for treatment. Although she’s much better now, she no longer has the finances to restart her business. Justina told Girl Power that as much as she wants to send her son to school this year, she can’t afford to send him. Her dream is to be able to restart her business so she can send her son to school next year.  These are photos of Justina receiving her new supply of selling goods to successfully re-start her business.
