Love INC Impact Stories

Relieving Financial Pressure

Posted by Kelly Voss on

"Leila" is a hard-working, successful woman who is raising two children as a single mom while owning and operating her own beauty business. To make ends meet, Leila also works part-time at a convenience store. Even though Leila has to put a lot of time and effort into her jobs, she's been grateful to be able to provide for her family in the past. 

Unfortunately, COVID-19 made it impossible for Leila's business to stay open due to safety restrictions. She found herself homeschooling her young daughter, meaning she couldn't pick up as many shifts at the convenience store. Her income took a huge hit and she still had to pay for her normal expenses, including rent for her business building. Frustrated by her sudden inability to pay all of her bills, she contacted Love INC for a little help.

Through the generosity of one of our partner churches, Westminster Presbyterian Church, we were able to contribute funds toward her water bill and relieve a bit of the financial pressure. We also prayed with Leila and encouraged her to keep going! Leila's customers are slowly returning to her business and she feels happy and hopeful for her future.
