Ingrid's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped make a difference in the lives of our student and employees by helping minimize the damages and losses of hurricane Maria.
I was raised in a Christian, military enviroment. I was taught to love and forgive. My mother was a Pastor who made a difference in the lives of many individuals and families. She founded El Shaddai Christian Academy without a cent in order to give our community a chance of a better education focusing on families with need. We integrated a baseball program to motivate many players studying at El Shaddai and help boost our economy. It was the best desicion ever! I have seen the changes in the students families and in their personal lives. We have had the blessing that our graduates return and keep in touch, letting us know the diffrence we made in their lives. My son graduated on May 2017 and I can say he misses this school and wants to finish his degree so he can return and make an impact on others. In him I see the need to continue this legacy left by my mother; Pastor Alice. I believe every one has a purpose, and mine is to change lives and give hope; With El Shaddai I will fulfill my purpose and give back some of all the blessing I have been given.
