Theodore's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy hurricane shutters to protect his home against powerful storms.

Theodore's story

Theodore is a retired United States Veteran and loving husband to his wife of many years. He feels that it is extremely important for him to remain independent in his retirement years.

When the last hurricane came through his area, he was barely able to put up his shutters due to his age. His shutters are old, very heavy, and too difficult for Theodore to put up on his own. Placing shutters on his windows is absolutely necessary to protect his home and maintain his safety during a storm.

Theodore is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to help him afford to place new shutters on his home that are easier to secure so that he can protect his home and ensure his safety.
