A loan of $1,100 helped to buy materials for making detergents and to buy a display case for her products.

Fabiola Amalia's story

"Entrepreneur" is the best word to describe Fabiola. Despite her age, she took a course six years ago to learn how to make detergent. Since then, she has dedicated herself to this activity and with the business income, Fabiola is able to cover household expenses for the home she shares with her husband. Fabiola is 51 years old. Her parents did not have stable income when she was young and the family struggled with many difficult financial situations. That's why Fabiola is so motivated now to create financial stability for her family.

She has many loyal customers who consistently order from her, but unfortunately her customers often pay on credit and Fabiola struggles to maintain enough working capital to keep her business running. For this reason, Fabiola is requesting a working capital loan to finance her production. She would also like to buy a case to display her products from her home. This loan will allow her to improve her sales and earn more income. Fabiola hopes this will allow her to expand her business and sell detergent to stores in other neighborhoods in her municipality.
