Maria'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 new air conditioner, which will greatly improve living conditions within her home.

Maria's story

Maria is a hardworking woman and loving grandmother. Maria works long hours in the medical field, and she is so proud of the work that she does. Maria lives independently in her home, and she takes pride in how well she has maintained her home.

Maria came home from work to find that her air conditioner stopped working. She could not afford to pay for the unit out of pocket, so she is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help her replace her air conditioner with monthly payments that she can afford. It has been quite exhausting for Maria to come home from work to a home where temperatures climb into the nineties.
