A loan of $1,325 helped to build a wall.


Celia Sanjuanita's story

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.
