Port St. Lucie, FL, United States / Personal Use

Susan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for an air conditioning unit that will greatly improve her quality of life and maintain her health.

Susan's story

Susan (who is pictured with a young boy she is currently caring for) is a strong and determined woman who has worked very hard throughout her life. Susan worked in the medical field for many years and is now retired. She planned well for her retirement and was able to purchase a small house, but she did not anticipate the air conditioning failing shortly after she moved into her new home.

Susan investigated multiple financing options to replace her air conditioner unit, but they were all too expensive. Susan’s credit history is very limited and this inhibited her ability to obtain affordable financing to replace the A/C unit.

Susan has been without an air conditioner for several months, enduring temperatures above 90 degrees. Susan is hoping that Kiva and SELF can help her finance a new high-efficiency A/C with payments that are affordable for her limited budget.
