Carol'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 greatly improve the safety and security of her home.

Carol's story

Carol is an elderly woman who is focused on supporting and being active with her family. She is currently retired and living on a fixed income, so she has to budget quite far ahead and plan for any big expenses.

Recently a storm came through her area and damaged a very large portion of her roof. Because of this damage and the age of her roof, she is going to have to replace the entire roof rather than just patch the portion that is open.

She cannot afford to pay this expense out of pocket, and Carol does not have the credit history to support an affordable loan through a bank. Carol is hoping that SELF and Kiva can provide her with an affordable loan to replace her roof to retain the safety and security of her home.
