Fabiola's story

Fabiola is 30 years old and she is an exemplary woman. She alone takes care of her young son Fabricio, who is 7 years old. She home schools him in her parents' house, located in the locality of Santa Ana. She lives with her 2 younger sisters. She makes various types of breads and biscuits, her specialty. She has been a baker for 10 years and she learned the trade from her father, and to date they work together. She states that following her business success she has been able to expand it even more, adding the sale of butter, cheese, and sausages, to be enjoyed with any type of bread. And given these additions her sales have increased. Throughout all this time she has been able to cover the household expenses, as well as her son's and her own education. In her quest for progress, she is learning to be a primary school teacher at an institution in her locality, and she is almost finished. What she most enjoys about her work is delivering breads and decorating cakes for special occasions. She also likes the Christmas season when she bakes turkeys. In the future she's thinking about studying to be a chocolatier and a pastry chef to improve her cakes and snacks. This will help her sales be more constant and secure. She is a member of the communal bank "Mi Banquito", meaning "My Little Bank" and this is her ninth loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). She is very happy and enthusiastic about continuing her active involved in her communal bank. She also promises to be punctual with her loan payments. Fabiola on receiving your support says she will invest the funds she requests in the purchase of ingredients necessary in the preparation of delicious breads, such as flour, yeast, and lard.
