Willie's story

Willie is a woman who is trying her best to live as independently as possible. She is a loving grandmother who spends as much time as she can with her grandchildren, and is cherishing every moment.

Willie sadly lost her husband not too long ago, and while she was grieving her loss, she was also grappling with the task of balancing her budget, as due to her own health issues, he had become the main income earner within the household. Since his passing, Willie has been maintaining everything related to her home’s maintenance on her own; however, when her roof began to leak, she did not have enough funds in her savings to cover the repair.

Willie is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help by providing her with an affordable loan that she will be able to maintain with her fixed income to cover the remaining cost of her roof, which will greatly improve the safety and structural stability of her home.
