Bernardino's story

Bernardino is from the city of Estelí. He is married and has one school-age child. He is noted for being a humble, responsible, hard-working person. He is a carpenter, or cabinetmaker, by trade and his work consists of making household furniture. It is through selling these items of furniture that he covers his family's expenses. Bernardino is requesting a loan to buy building supplies such as sand, a toilet, tiles, pipes, cement, wood and bricks in order to build a bathroom in his home. He is grateful to Kiva and Ceprodel for the support they are providing which will make it possible for him to install a bathroom, provide his family with better living conditions and also protect the environment.
