Carbonear, NL (February 1, 2016) — What’s the BEST. LOAN. EVER.? The loan you win back. From October – November 2015 more than 34,000 Canadians entered to win the value of their Fairstone loan (up to $10,000) by visiting their local branch. One of those entrants was Shawn Slade, who works with Branch Manager Peggy Conway and her team at the nearby Carbonear Fairstone.
