Clara Shpargel describes herself
as "a happy person. I have a good,
supportive family who would pitch
in if I needed them, and I worked
hard and raised three kids myself,"
Clara says. "But sometimes things
come up. I'm a very private, inde-
pendent person, and I'd rather take
care of those things on my own."
Clara went to Hebrew Free Loan at
the urging of a friend when her bills
became overwhelming. "I was very
proud, and had never asked for any-
thing before, so when I got there, I
was a nervous wreck. They were so
nice to me, and over the years I've
had four loans through HFL. I never
missed a payment, and I'm not in
debt, and I owe it all to HFL. I don't
know where I'd be without them. I
have a freedom, I don't worry so
much, and I feel good about myself."
Clara believes more people should
approach Hebrew Free Loan. "No
one should be shy, they're there to
help. And there's no interest. I think
it's the best thing that happened to
the Jewish people."
