Jose's story

Jose is a United States Armed Forces Veteran who served our country for 24 years, and is also a devoted husband, father and grandfather to his family. Jose and his family have experienced a lot of setbacks recently that have affected Jose and his wife’s credit greatly. After the housing market plummeted, Jose and his wife struggled to pay their living expenses and the mortgage on the home that they love. Jose’s wife of 40 years suffered a serious medical issue that has left her disabled and totally dependent on Jose’s care. He struggles to make ends meet, but he does the best he can for his family. Jose recently assumed primary custody of his two grandsons, and although this makes Jose’s financial difficulties even harder, he is happy to ensure that they are well taken care of. Jose has since refinanced his home and has made great progress with repairing his credit and getting back on track, but he still needs a bit of help. The family’s air conditioner has stopped working and they are in desperate need of a new unit. With four family members and temperatures soaring, the home has become very uncomfortable to live in during the day, and Jose’s wife cannot afford to deal with the heat considering her current health. Jose is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help finance a new high-efficiency air conditioner that will improve the quality of life for his family as well as save money on their electric bills. Jose will use his Kiva loan to pay for a new high-efficiency air conditioner to improve his family’s quality of life and save money on the family’s electric bills.
