A loan of $3,000 helped to help pay for a small solar system for Delores' home to help lower her electric bills and lessen her impact on the environment.


Delores's story

Delores is a single, elderly woman who is trying to remain as independent as possible. Delores has raised her children and now lives in a modest home that she is quite proud of and that she has worked hard to maintain. Recently, Delores began seeking advice regarding the installation of solar panels. She realized that Florida is lagging far behind other states in regards to the installation of solar panels even though Florida is the "Sunshine State." Delores is environmentally conscious and, although her funds are limited, she would like to do her part to help the environment and save money on her electricity bills. Delores is hoping that SELF and Kiva can help finance a portion of her solar project.
