A loan of $475 helped to build a security wall.

Myrna's story

Myrna is originally from Piedras Negras, the place where she has lived her whole life. She is a very young mother of a very cute little boy. Along with her husband she has learned that in order to be able to give all the best to her son, it is necessary to work hard so that he will never lack for anything. She works selling shoes, jewelry and clothing, helping her husband with the household financial expenses. Her husband has worked as a bricklayer for several years and he is currently remodeling a fish shop.

She is asking for support through Kiva in order to be able to build a security wall around her home to have more protection because nowadays there is a lot of insecurity and she doesn’t want anything bad to happen to them, much less to her son. This way he could go out to play on the patio with her having the piece of mind that he is safe.
