Annie's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to get my basement remodeled so that I can accommodated more working parents as well as my yard fenced in to keep the children safe.

Annie's story

Being raised by a single parent with 3 brothers and 1 sister was not easy. We was not considered wealthy, actually we had a lot of struggles. I can remember saying, "I can't wait until I'm old enough to move out on my own, I did not like being poor. My mother worked all the time and my oldest brother would have to babysit us. We often missed meals and never had the opportunity to go outside and play with other children. However, when we did they would run us away because we were not wealthy like they were. As I got older, I realized that I had special place in my heart for children. I would always babysit for family members and close friends. Today, I currently care for 6 children that I love dearly and it's quite obvious they love me because each morning they give me a big hug. I take this role and responsibility very serious and consider it a blessing to have this opportunity. I believe that every child is unique and special. My mission is to provide a warm and caring environment that expresses joy and love as I provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere on a daily basis. I understand that a peaceful and happy place for children is created through a caring, positive, and affirming atmosphere.
