Georgia'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 to ensure the safety and security of Georgia's home.

Georgia's story

Georgia is an elderly woman who is living alone but trying her best to remain independent and self-sufficient. Georgia worked for many years, and is now retired, and is living on a very fixed income.

Her roof recently developed a serious leak, and although she budgets to complete necessary repairs to her home, she was not prepared for the upfront costs of a roof replacement. The roof cannot be patched because the current materials are way past the usable life. Georgia's payment history on all of her bills is absolutely perfect, but because of her very fixed income, she cannot afford any of the offers she was able to find with her very tight budget. Georgia cannot leave the leak to go much longer because of health and structural issues.

She is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to [provide] a low cost loan for her that she will be able to afford.
