Is there a limit to the amount of interest that can be charged on a personal loan?

What level of loan interest is considered illegal usury? A friend, who is a single mother, borrowed money from a guy and to whom she has been paying him interest for many years. The interest has accumulated to her paying him more than triple times and at the moment she's in a poor financial situation but the guy keeps insisting although she tells him she has no money at the time. I was wondering can she file a civil lawsuit against this guy for usury?
