Maryellen'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 ensure the safety and security of MaryEllen's roof for many years.

Maryellen's story

MaryEllen is strong single woman who works very hard to support herself and her child on her own. As any single mother must, MaryEllen maintains a strict budget, and recently she inquired about her home insurance costs, which are a required bill, and she found that not only is her roof not in very good shape and may not survive another serious storm, but that the age and condition of the roof is the reason for her high insurance costs.

MaryEllen is quite worried about the assessment of the condition of her roof, and she simply cannot keep paying high premiums on her homeowner's insurance due to the cost of her roof. She does not have the upfront funds to pay for the roof, and she has been unable to find an affordable loan for the cost of her roof replacement.

She is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to provide an affordable monthly payment that will ensure that her home is safe during the upcoming hurricane season, and help bring down the operating cost of her home.
