A loan helped to pay for a roof replacement for Jose's damaged and leaking roof.


Jose's story

Jose is a devoted father, and a loving husband to his wife of many years. He purchased his home years ago when he was working to provide a stable home environment for his family, and has worked very hard to ensure that it is maintained and safe. Jose has now retired and is living on a fixed income with his wife, and they work hard to ensure that they do not have bills that they cannot afford.

When a large leak developed in their ceiling, Jose was not prepared for the upfront costs of a roof replacement to ensure that the living environment in his home remains safe and that his home does not sustain long term damage. Jose has had difficulty finding an affordable loan to make this necessary replacement.

He is hoping that SELF and Kiva will provide a loan that fits into his monthly budget so that he can ensure that his home stays safe and secure.

It helps women homeowners and veterans with poor credit history save energy and money.
