Carole'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 provide safety and security for her home.

Carole's story

Carole is an elderly widow who is trying her best to maintain her independence in her home. She still lives in the same home she shared with her late husband and is able to cover her expenses on a fixed income.

Carole recently had her roof assessed because the ceiling developed several leaks. She relies on sticking to her budget, but she does not have enough in her savings to cover the upfront costs of replacing the roof. Carole learned about the Kiva loans from SELF, so she hopes to make this necessary replacement with payments that she can afford on her tight budget.
