Fabiola Ester's story

Fabiola is someone who has always been very hard-working and is always seeking to offer her family a better quality of life. She is a single mother and the head of her family of 5 sons. Her husband died some time ago and she was left to take care of her sons as a widow. Roughly 21 years ago, she set up a general store with her husband with the purpose of generating the income necessary for her household. Thanks to the knowledge gained from her husband during that time about how to manage the shop, she was able to keep the business going once he passed. Fabiola provides very good service and thanks to this she has been able to gain very good customers that guarantee good sales. With the goal of making some alterations to her shop, she is requesting a loan that would enable her to make some of those alterations to her business in order to make it more pleasant for her customers. Fabiola considers that in this way she will be able to continue to move forward with her shop as well as keep it in good repair. Moreover, she hopes that it will help her sales to grow and her sons can enjoy a better quality of life.
