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

A loan helped to pay for a sewer line replacement for her home, which will maintain the safety and living conditions within it.

Marie's story

Marie is a hardworking, single woman who wishes to live as independently as possible throughout her life. Marie has worked at the same organization for many years and has been very careful to live within her means with minimal credit utilization. Through careful budgeting and planning, she has been able to maintain the home that she purchased for herself some years back on her own; however, she was unable to adequately plan for her sewer line rupturing under her home.

Marie was shocked when she learned the extent of the damage, and extremely worried when she realized there was no way she would be able to make this emergency repair out-of-pocket. She was unable to obtain a loan due to having very little credit history, so she came to SELF with the hopes that SELF and Kiva would be able to help her obtain a loan with an affordable payment for her single-income household.
