Fabiola's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me buy more merchandise for my gifts and jewelry business.
I was born in Mexico in the State of Guanajuato and the first time I came to the US was in 2000 but I was an illegal. During high school, some girls from the same school attacked me because I was from Mexico. After this episode I escaped back to Mexico because I got scared and I didn't want to stay anymore. In Mexico I started a family and with my husband we decided to try again to come to the United States to give a better future for our children. One year and three months ago I finally obtained a visa and I was able to legally enter the country but I had to come here first and my kids could only join me after one year. Three months ago I could finally re-join with my children and we can start our lives together in the United States.
