Phyllis Continued Christmas Tradition With Help From Aura
Christmas is a special time of year for Phyllis and her family. Tradition means hosting her daughters and grandchildren for dinner on Christmas Eve at her home, with gifts for all. But unexpected expenses just before the holiday this year meant she would not be able to afford hosting Christmas as usual.
More than just spending time with her family and celebrating the holidays, Phyllis viewed Christmas as a time when she could offer financial support to her daughters, both single mothers. She knew from her own experience the difficulties of raising children alone.
On Christmas Eve Phyllis applied for an Aura loan. She didn’t know whether or not she would be approved.
“Being a single mother and the things that have gone on in my life, I didn't think that I would qualify,” Phyllis said, “But surprisingly, I did.”
Phyllis received her loan from us on the same day and was able to continue her cherished Christmas tradition with her family.
