Make my dream come true
Organized by: reni gonzalez
Hello! My name is Reni Gonzalez. I am married and I am a student at LIEOC in Hempstead, NY (a community organization helping legal immigrants develop English). I have had many different jobs, but I have always been forced to leave my jobs because the hours would always change and not allow me to continue with my classes at the LIEOC. My wife and I have no other family, no one to help us. Not too long ago, I suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. The pressures of paying our bills, finding work, and the fact that my wife has only been able to get part-time work have affected my health. Recently, a student from the LIEOC told me, “Why don’t you get a job as a taxi driver? You can be your own boss, work your own hours, and still continue studying! “I really want to do this, but I will need at least $5,000 to cover the cost of buying a used car and all the other expenses like registration, license, and insurance. I asked one of my teachers if she could advise me on how a person in my situation could qualify for a loan. She told me about your website. I am a hard worker. I am willing to do whatever it takes to achieve my dreams and my goals. I know that with God’s help and hopefully with the help of good hearted people, I will be able to make my dream come true.
