    consented

    Hi,
    Is this sentence correct?
    "Very reluctantly, he consented her to lend the money to Janet."
    Thanks.

    (not a professional teacher) It doesn't sound natural. Better would be "he gave consent for her to..." or, "her permitted her" or, "he allowed her"

    Re: consented

    Thank you very much.
    Instead of "for", can I use "to"? => consent to her
    Thanks.
