About JUST:

JUST provides capital, coaching and community to hundreds of low-income, female entrepreneurs per year. Since our launch in 2016, we have never checked a credit score or required collateral, and our repayment rate is 99.3%. We have made over 2,000 loans, totaling more than $3M, to over 600 hard-working female entrepreneurs in Central Texas. We work to change the narrative around the potential of low-income communities to be their own change agents when given access to the right resources. We create less stress and more joy.
