Lavonne'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 LaVonne's quality of life and living conditions within her home.

Lavonne's story

LaVonne is a strong, single woman who works hard to support herself and maintain her home. LaVonne works long hours caring for others, and she takes great pride in her work despite the hectic schedule. She maintains her small home on her own, and budgets carefully to make repairs and maintenance so that it stays in good condition.

During the summer, her air conditioner stopped working suddenly, and LaVonne was not prepared for these immediate costs. Due to her lack of credit history, she was unable to obtain an affordable loan to make this necessary replacement. During the summer months, temperatures within her home soar, making it quite hard for her to come home and rest after a day's work.

LaVonne is hoping that SELF and Kiva can provide her with a loan that is affordable to make this necessary replacement.
