Brenda's story

Brenda is a strong woman and loving mother to her adult son who has special needs. For many years, she worked long hours in order to raise her son as a single mother. She has since retired and is now living on a very fixed income. Brenda is very conscious in regards to her expenses so that she does not have to rely on credit cards in order to make ends meet. This has unfortunately hindered her ability to obtain any form of financing as she now has a very limited credit history. Brenda doesn’t have the out-of-pocket cash to purchase a much needed air conditioner. Her old unit quit working some time ago, and the Florida summer is in full gear with temperatures in her home sometimes hotter than outside. Brenda has tried every alternative to obtain financing for a new unit, and now SELF and Kiva are her last resort. Brenda will use her Kiva loan to pay for a new energy efficient A/C that will greatly improve the living conditions in her home as well as her quality of life.
