A loan helped to purchase an air conditioner that will help preserve her health and improve the living conditions in her home.

Ruby's story

Ruby is a strong single woman who is trying to live as independently as possible. She is now retired and living on a fixed income. Since retiring, Ruby has scaled back her expenses and has only utilized credit when absolutely necessary. Because of her prudent spending habits, Ruby’s credit history is nearly non-existent, which has hindered her ability to finance a much-needed air conditioning unit for her home. When her air conditioner quit working, temperatures within her home soared and this caused Ruby much distress since she has several health issues that can be worsened by living in a home where the temperatures can be much higher than the outside air.

Ruby will use her Kiva loan to purchase an air conditioner, which will help preserve her health and greatly improve the living conditions within her home.
