For over a decade, Pierre Bernard Bruno has been supplying his community of Terrier Rouge, Haiti, with well constructed, hand-made furniture. As a husband and a father of six children, Pierre says providing for his family has always been difficult. Without the ability to keep many materials in stock, he has been limited in his furniture construction. Now repaying his second loan from Esperanza International, HOPE’s partner in Haiti, Pierre has purchased new tools and expanded his supply of wood. His wife and six children are benefitting, as Pierre’s increased income ensures healthier, more frequent meals and provides his children with the supplies and books they need to attend school. Though Pierre’s business is now promoted simply by word of mouth, he dreams of having a storefront where he can display his work for the community to see.
