I here to tell you that as a 43+ year old woman in college, that without the help of financial aide I wouldn't be able to attend college. My husband owns and operates his own business, however, after paying for gas, maintenance, workers, etc. we just barely make ends meet. Don't get me wrong we are struggling financially to the point that we are poor but he definitely would not be able to pay for me to further my education. He does however show me the love and support and the encouragement that helps me push through. I would like to say thank you for this great opportunity that has been given to me to further my education.
