Together they have three children between the ages of one and ten years old, two of whom are studying. She has been a flour merchant for the past year. Fabiola is on her third loan with Turame. With the loan she receives from KIVA, she plans to increase her business capital and purchase a large quantity of flour that she will resell to earn more revenue. In the coming years, she would like to buy a cow so that she can use the dung to fertilize her field for crops.
