Judith Fabiola's story

Judith has been a customer for a long time and this is her third loan. She has two daughters, aged 9 and 12, who she educates and provides for since her husband has been overseas for five years and doesn't send money to support the girls. Judith's main business is selling cosmetics by promoting sales for an important company which offers products by catalogue. Her second business is a beauty salon. She lives with relatives of her husband so she doesn't have to pay rent or a mortgage. She has never been delinquent on previous loans.

On Sundays and Thursdays, she sells cosmetic products in the "16 de julio" neighborhood. She plans to use the loan to buy wholesale cosmetics which are on sale, so she can sell at the original price and earn more income. She is a young woman who wants very much to get ahead, and is very grateful for the support received.
