A few years ago, Karen and her husband went through a rough patch while her husband struggled to find a job in the rural town in Indiana where they reside. She was very proud when he finally got a job as a trucker. Wanting to be more involved, Karen helped her husband as much as she could from dispatching to organizing his routes.

Karen herself is on disability Social Security, but she would like to be able to generate enough income to fully support herself. Seeing the need her husband had for extra help and an opportunity to use her experience, she decided to open her own business. Her business will move freight with semi-trucks all over America. In order to successfully launch her business though, there are many initial fees that Karen simply cannot afford on her own.

With your help, Karen will be able to pay for the necessary training, fees, and supplies. Please help Karen get her new business off the ground!
