Betty'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 roof, which will ensure the safety and security of Betty's home.

Betty's story

Betty is an elderly woman who loves her family dearly and is trying her best to remain independent and of no burden to her children

Betty has managed to maintain her modest home on her own. Betty has been financially responsible, and has lived within her means through the help of managing her budget well and saving, even though she lives on a fixed income.

Betty did not anticipate that this roof replacement would be coming so soon, and she does not have the savings available to cover the costs 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.
