Meet Bernadette

Bernadette is a widow with 5 children aged from 3 ½ to 13.

She has a small business selling food by the roadside, but struggles to support her young family on this alone.

Rope has invested £400 in her farm so she can grow huckleberries, which she hopes to sell to a large customer, doubling the money she has received from Rope.

With the money made she hopes to extend the land she farms to a hectare and buy a piece of land to build a home.

She hopes to feed and clothe her children and pay for their school fees.
