Bernarda's story

Bernarda is a Kubo.financiero borrower. This is his story:

My name is Bernarda, I am 54 years old. My husband died 16 years ago, so I had to take care of my five children, which have grown and now they work on their own.

I own a house and all my savings are in the business, I have two locals in a market called Jamaica, I have work extremely hard to provide for my family and leave them with some assets. I will like them to follow me in the business and continue with the tradition of selling corn products, which is a very old mexican tradition, like selling nopal ( a type of cactus).

My project is called: "Jamaica Vive" which means Jamaica lives. I called it that way, because my food stall is located in the Jamaica Market, and I believe that with the refurbishing, I will be able to improve the image of my business and attract more clients.

I work buying and selling crude corn. I also cook different products made of corn such as: esquites, corn pie, corn on the cob, etc.

I started my business 35 years ago, my husband had a local in the Jamaica market and now I have two. I work in one and my daughter works in the other one.

My biggest accomplishment has been providing stability for my kids.
