Shannon's story

Shannon is a strong single woman who works hard to provide the best opportunities for her son, who also appears in the photo. She works as a veterinary technician at an animal hospital. Even though the work can be quite demanding, she feels fulfilled in knowing that she is making a difference for the animals she nurses back to health.

Shannon came to SELF after her air conditioner stopped working. She is unable to obtain affordable financing elsewhere due to a low credit score. Her home became unbearable for her family. Shannon and her family resorted to living in one room with a fan so that they could get relief from the intense heat that was building up in their home. They lived this way for some time because she was not able to pay the upfront cost of buying a new air conditioner.

Shannon is quite worried about the health of her family since living in this heat has caused minor health issues to worsen. She hopes that SELF and Kiva can help her obtain an affordable loan so that she can make this important purchase for her family and improve the living conditions in her home. Shannon is also excited that this loan will help her rebuild her credit over time.

She will be using this Kiva loan to pay for a new air conditioner that will greatly improve the living conditions in her home.
