JUST, the local nonprofit organization helping to fund Latina and Black Texan Female entrepreneurs will be holding their annual market – JUST Fest “A New Day, A New Dream” on Sat. Nov. 12 from 1-5 p.m. in the Mueller Park Pavillion. The market will feature handmade jewelry, purses, and other goods from 35 + vendors (all JUST clients) as well as homemade tacos, treats, and beverages.
The fest is family-friendly and will include some kid’s activities as well.
Entry is free and open to the public, and funds donated to The New Day, New Dream Fund will go directly to supporting more female entrepreneurs in the local Austin area and Dallas, Houston, and El Paso.
JUST is trying to close the racial wealth gap by offering trust-based personal and business loans to Latina and Black Female entrepreneurs – they do not check clients’ credit or ask for collateral and have had a 99.3% repayment rate. JUST’s goal is to reach $50,000 to support 100 new women in 2023.
