Humanus Corporation

Based on a friendly and uncomplicated approach to business needs, Metro Finance structures loans at simple interest, and entertains capital infusion on an equity basis. Loans may be amortized over a one year to a 99 year model depending on the requirements and repayment ability of the business petitioning for a loan. High risk loans are considered, and may require an equity position for safety considerations. Each application is considered on its merits, beginning with management. Strong management in a high risk application carries more weight than the business itself, as Metro Finance recognizes that any business with strong leadership stands a higher chance of success than "garage band" applications. All applications are considered. Charity - Official Julian Lennon Website.

Since then, Julian has been supporting lupus through his music and photography, collaborating with singer-songwriter James Scott Cook on a track called Lucy, the proceeds of which have gone to aid research into the disease.
