Celia Sanjuanita
Celia is a very friendly and responsible person who has been living in Piedras Negras for 30 years. Just like her husband she is originally from Nuevo León, but due to her husband's work, they had to move city, today her husband has been retired from the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (Federal Electricity Commission) for several years. Her children are already adults and have their own family. Celia works as a nanny looking after two children who are her grandchildren and she is very happy about looking after them as she feels at ease with them.

Celia is seeking help from Kiva to be able to build a wall which she started but wants to finish so that her grandchildren can play outside near the house and she can remain where she is safe in the knowledge that they are fine. Particularly as at this moment, there is a lack of safety in the city and she wants the best for them, both for herself and her husband as well as her grandchildren.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
