Marilyn's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me build a professional website to market our support services the foundation provides for family victims of homicide.
I was born in raised in Florida and moved to West Oakland nearly 40 years ago. I worked for the Army and Navy for 17 years as an Administrative Assistant before retiring. I married in 1977 and had three children. I got divorced in 1998 and remarried in 2002 to Jess Harris who I've been happily married to for the last 15 years. In the summer of 2000 I lost my 18 year old middle son Khadafy to violence and started the Khadafy Foundation in his memory.
