Elizabeth's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped improve her quality of life and the overall health conditions for her daughter by installing a new air conditioner in her home.

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is a strong and loving single mother who has spent much of her life caring for her family, and she also has managed to raise her daughter on her own, while working full time as a registered nurse for the past 30 years.

Elizabeth inherited her mother’s home, and is determined to keep it in her family. Raising a child and dealing with her mother’s illness and final expenses, on one income and as a single mother, caused Elizabeth’s credit to be damaged, making it impossible for her to obtain reasonable financing to replace her air conditioning unit.

Currently Elizabeth and her daughter, who suffers from multiple medical issues that are exacerbated by the high temperatures in their home, are in need of a new air conditioning unit as they are experiencing record high temperatures in the area.

Elizabeth is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help her obtain an affordable loan with small payments within her budget that will allow her to install a new unit in her home. Although Elizabeth may have suffered financial distress, she is proud to share that she has never defaulted on a loan.

Elizabeth will improve her quality of life and the overall living conditions for her daughter with this Kiva loan. She will also attend the required credit counseling seminars so that she can use the Kiva loan to rebuild her credit history.
