Fausta's story

Fausta is now 74 years old, and is continuing to work in her internet cafe business, and it is going very well. With her savings she was able to pay for her services and buy some small accessories, and do maintenance on her computers. Fausta also makes knitted items such as blankets to sell. At this time, she wants to invest the loan in purchasing materials to make the thick blankets that she knits. She wants to have a good quantity of knitted blankets to sell during the Christmas season, so that she will have extra income to buy gifts for her children and grandchildren. Fausta requests a loan to invest in materials such as a variety of wool in different colors and weights to use making blankets.
