Philanthropist SoughtIn Illinois, David and Anita Schroeder ran the following want ad in the St. Louis Post Dispatch several weeks ago, hoping it would cause a good-hearted benefactor with big bucks to spare to come to their aid:
Philanthropist sought! Young, productive faithful Illinois farm family looking for $400,000 at low interest to consolidate deadly high interest loans. Collateral: $1,000,000 farm.
"We've had about 20 calls and letters but no one has offered the desired loan at 6 to 8% interest," Anita told FARM SHOW two weeks ago. "Several brokers called to say they might have 11% or 12% money to loan."
Meanwhile, the Schroeders are hopeful that their "longshot" plea for help will pay off: "We basically feel there's somebody out there who will show concern and be willing to take a chance with us."
The Schroeders can be contacted at: FARM SHOW Followup, David and Anita Schroeder, 13410 92nd Ave., Coal Valley, Ill. 61240 (ph 309 234-5227).
