Grammar: Lend

Amarante has a good heart. She volunteers to help out in several organizations. She lent her support to the local environmental political party, and she lent a hand to people in third world countries through Houses for Humanity projects once a year. She paid her own way to go to these projects. That lent support to the idea that she is very generous.

The banks however, do not like her. They lent her money but she didn’t pay it back on time. She lent the money she borrowed to other poor people. This may be kind but it is irresponsible, and the banks do not like it. Amarante has to find better ways to give than this before she gets in real trouble.
