Bernardina sells sheets, comforters and drapes. This activity supports her family and is a source of income for her household. She lives in her mother-in-law's house. Bernardina has a 3 year-old child who she says is the driving force in her life. Her husband earns a wage but in his spare time he helps her with her business or in caring for their son.
Bernardina will use her loan money to buy merchandise wholesale: sheets and drapes. The end-of-year festive season means a lot of sales for her. She would also like to buy tablecloths with Christmas prints to sell this season. Bernardina is a very hard-working person and she is grateful to the institution for the support she has received.
