Judith'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 her quality of life and the living conditions within her home.

Judith's story

Judith is a hardworking woman who strives to provide for herself and her family. Judith spends long days caring for and educating children, and she takes great pride and satisfaction in her work.

Judith tries her best to maintain her home on her own; however, when her air conditioner recently stopped cooling her home efficiently and her electricity bill sky rocketed, she thought it was simply that her air ducts need to be replaced. She quickly learned that air conditioner was failing and is not repairable, in addition to her air ducts needing to be replaced. She does not have the funds to pay for this repair out of pocket.

Judith is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help her make this necessary replacement, as temperatures within her home have already begun to soar and so have her energy bills.
