Bernardina's story

Bernardina is a kind and caring lady. She is 44 years old. She lives in the community of San Pablo Jocopilas. She has a lovely family of four children between the ages of 19 and 25 years of age. In order to help her husband with the household expenses she sells tortillas in her village. She has been doing this activity for five years but in order to improve her income she also has another job washing clothes with which she gets a bit more income. Bernardina has now taken the initiative to construct a facility where in the future she can open a store so she can buy and sell groceries, but one of the difficulties that Bernandina has is that she does not have the capital to start construction. This is why she is asking for a loan to use to buy cement, blocks, sand, iron and gravel. She is harboring the hope of getting a loan so she can construct a place where she can have another source of income by setting up her store.
