Grammar: Lend

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

The banks however, do not like her. They lend her money but she doesn’t pay it back on time. She lends the money she borrows 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.
