Dear Uncle Tobias:

I haven’t seen you since last Thanksgiving and I hope you and Aunt Jane are safe and well. This letter is a formal request for a loan of $1000 to help pay the expenses of back-to-school for Mary and Luke.

They are entering fifth and seventh grades respectively and need new shoes, school supplies and laptops, and I have to pay fees for sports participation for Luke and pottery class for Mary.

Normally, I would be able to afford these things, but I had to pay a percentage of my cancer treatment, which depleted my savings. Thankfully, I am cancer-free now.

I start back to work next month and will begin to receive my full paycheck. Once that starts, I can repay you $200 per month for five months and whatever interest you require.

Thank you for considering my situation, and if it isn’t a good time for you to lend money, don’t worry, things will work out. Give my love to Aunt Jane.

Your loving niece,

Susan
