A loan helped to pay for a new roof that will greatly improve the safety and security of her home.


Alice's story

Alice is an elderly woman who is trying her best to live independently for as long as possible. She maintains her home on her own and follows a strict budget since she lives on a very fixed income.

After recent storms passed through the area, Alice began noticing a few leaks in her ceiling. She soon learned that the roof would need to be replaced, but there was no way that she could afford the cost out of pocket.

Alice is very concerned about the safety and security of her home, so she is hoping that SELF and Kiva will help her replace the roof with a payment plan that she will be able to afford.
