Patricia'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 that will greatly improve the safety and security of her home.

Patricia's story

Patricia is a retired widow who is maintaining her home on her own. She has been adjusting to living on her own, so she is very careful with her finances as she lives on a fixed income and a tight budget.

Patricia recently noticed that her roof was in great need of repair, but she soon learned that it actually needed to be replaced since it was structurally unstable. She cannot afford to pay for a new roof upfront with her tight budget and small amount of savings.

Patricia is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to provide her with a payment plan that she can afford to ensure that her home stays safe and secure with a new roof.
