Velda's story

Velda is a strong, hardworking woman who loves her family dearly and is making a difference in the lives of others everyday. She takes pride in knowing that she is having a positive impact in the lives of so many children everyday.

Velda is an independent woman who has managed to maintain her modest home on her own. Velda has been financially responsible, and only used credit that she felt she could afford and only when she needed to.

When her roof began to leak, she was quite shocked because she previously had the rood replaced; however, it was learned that the contractor who completed the work did not do so properly. Velda was devastated, and this means that she needs to install a new roof quickly in order to avoid further damage, and also to ensure her home is safe before storm season arrives again.

Velda does not have the funds to cover this roof replacement out of pocket, so she is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to provide a loan with payments that are affordable to make this necessary replacement.
