Patricia's story

Patricia is a strong, hardworking woman and loving mother to her two children. She works very hard to provide for her children by maintaining a full-time job while also continuing her education. Patricia has fared well as a single mother, but she has experienced difficulty obtaining an affordable loan to replace several older windows in her home. She has limited credit history and therefore cannot obtain financing from traditional banks. Patricia is worried that her old windows will not be able to withstand a serious hurricane, so she is hoping that Kiva and SELF can help her obtain an affordable loan to safeguard her family and build a positive credit history as she repays her loan.
