Linda's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to pay for a new air conditioner, which will greatly improve Linda's quality of life and living conditions within her home.

Linda's story

Linda is working hard independently to support her home on her own. She bought her small home years ago and has managed to maintain the home through careful planning on her fixed income.

She has tried her best to plan for repairs that she was able to foresee. However, when her air conditioner stopped working, she was not prepared to cover the out-of-pocket investment to replace the unit. Linda hopes that she will be provided with the funding she needs with payments she can afford.
