Maria Diamond, Waskagonish, QC, wins almost $2,000
One of five Fairstone customers across Canada to win the BEST. LOAN. EVER.

Hull, QC (June 29, 2016) — Five Fairstone customers have won the BEST. LOAN. EVER. One of those entrants was Maria Diamond, who took out her first loan with Fairstone only two days before the BEST. LOAN. EVER. contest closed at the nearby Hull branch.


The BEST. LOAN. EVER. contest offered five customers the opportunity to win the value of their loan (up to $10,000). From April 1 to 30 more than 13,000 customers across Canada entered the contest.


Maria couldn’t believe it when she received a call from her Branch Manager, Veronique Neron, telling her she had won almost $2,000. “I even called a few days later to make sure it wasn’t a joke,” she said. Maria plans to use her prize to pay off her loan.


“Congratulations to all of the winners from across Canada,” said Scott Wood, President, Fairstone Canada, Inc. “With over 200 branches coast to coast, Fairstone is here to support people during their times of financial need. We’re proud to make a difference in our customers’ lives. Thank you to everyone who entered our contest.”
