Paula's story

Paula is a hardworking, independent woman who works long hours to provide for herself and maintain her home.

Years ago, Paula purchased a small home where she raised her two children on her own. She is extremely proud of her home, but recently she has had to expend her budget for repairs on a major plumbing issue. Shortly after this, her roof began to leak.

Paula does not have the funds to replace the roof, and she is having difficulty financing the replacement through a bank due to her credit history being limited. Paula is hoping that SELF and Kiva will give her a chance, and help her make this necessary replacement with a monthly payment she can afford.
