Linda's story

Linda is a strong, hardworking woman who was faced with a catastrophic illness that nearly cost her life and caused great financial hardship. During these very difficult times, Linda remained positive and continued to push forward towards improved health and she has since made a full recovery. While Linda is thankful to have recovered, she was left with many large medical bills that caused quite a bit of damage to her credit. She was forced to use all of her savings during her illness, and she struggled to catch up for quite some time. Although she has managed to rebound from her unfortunate situation, she has experienced difficulty obtaining a loan through a traditional bank to replace her very old and malfunctioning A/C unit that has been causing high energy bills and is no longer efficiently cooling her home. The Florida heat and humidity is extreme and could cause mold issues, which in turn, could cause more health issues. Linda is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help her finance a new high efficiency a/c unit for her home to replace her old unit that is over 11 years old.
