Fabiola Marquez | Founder

Hi, My name is Fabiola Marquez and I’m the founder of WARIMBA, an Artisanal Design brand for wellbeing.

These communities struggle to preserve their art and traditions as a consequence of the industrialization that has caused many to abandon their craftsman work for several reasons. Read more>>

I think my business has a huge impact on the community and subsequently the world. My law firm is focused on financial freedom. We do that by helping people to start businesses, protect their intellectual property, or get out of debt. Helping people get debt free and being able to build wealth in their families changes their lives forever. It allows them to have a better life. My clients are then able to pour their financial resources into their local community, and the local community pour into the greater community, and so on and so forth. Read more>>
