A loan of $725 helped to install a gate.


Candido's story

Candido is from Piedras Negras, where he has been living for 37 years. He is a very kind and responsible person. He is the only man in his family as he has six sisters. He has two children. He separated from his wife for personal reasons two years ago. His son and his daughter-in-law live with him.

With great effort, he bought his own house a little while ago. He works for a company that collects trash throughout the entire city. This helps the city to always look clean.

The people who know him consider him to be a very honest and very determined person. He has always tried to give his children the best.

He is requesting support through Kiva because he wants to install a gate in front of his house. He wants to do this in order to avoid any damage to his property. With this he will avoid thefts and damage to his property. He will also feel more peaceful when he leaves the house alone.
