Bernardo Antonio's story

Santa Rosa del Peñón is a beautiful and charming municipality with various types of companies that help residents find work. Fifty-three year-old Bernardo Antonio works as a secondary school teacher. He is a determined man who fights to provide for himself and his family.

He lives with his wife and their three children, whom he loves very much. His wife is also a teacher and with the little that she earns she helps to support their family.

One of his dreams is to construct a kitchen in their home. This is the reason he is asking for a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel to purchase cement, sand, corrugated metal roofing and wood. With this, his family's quality of living would greatly improve.

He gives thanks to God for the honourable people that help in this type of activity. He mainly thanks Kiva and Ceprodel for caring about the living conditions of struggling families like Bernardo's.
