A loan helped to pay for a new air conditioner, which will greatly improve Charlene's quality of life and living conditions within her home.


Charlene's story

Charlene is a strong single woman and loving mother to her children. Charlene works long hours for a non-profit and has dedicated her life to helping improve children's lives. Charlene is intensely focused on ensuring that her children are provided a safe and healthy living environment, so when her air conditioner stopped working, she was very concerned as her children are having to study and learn from home. Charlene, supporting her home on one income, was unable to afford to replace her air conditioner out of pocket, so she is hoping that SELF and Kiva will be able to provide her with payments that she can afford on her tight budget to make this necessary replacement.
