This is not something I would want to do. It is shameful, however, I've got no other choice than to try and reach out for help, anyway I can.
Before you judge me, I know I don't have the right to request a donation for a debt I accumulated. But I wasn't expecting my life to be this way at the age of 25. This is my story.
I grew up in Dubai since I was 7, I went back home to the Philippines to study university, and my parents strived so I could graduate from a top university, and I did. After graduating in 2013 they took me back with them to Dubai and I worked there until last October 2016.
Unfortunately, a bad recession hit us late of 2015 and most of 2016. My dad got laid off work, my mom was having trouble keeping her job stable as they wanted to lay her off too, I had to support all of us for a couple of months since my job was stable at the time. I had to get a credit card because I couldn't do it all on my salary, then the worst came when they told me they would be letting me go too. We had investments in the Philippines, both my parents used what was left of our money to close their accounts and make sure we got home to the Philippines.
We're all having difficulty acquiring jobs, we only had small savings, we had to let go of our properties and we're now living in an old house of a relative. I used part of my savings and what I could earn with part-time jobs in the Philippines to slowly pay off what was left of my balance on my credit card. It's not a big amount, but I hadn't been able to pay since February because we honestly don't have much anymore. Now the bank is threatening to take legal action on me if I don't pay the rest of the amount, I'm saving money little by little but it's still not enough.
I have a part-time job but they said that's not enough to secure that I would be paying them. I'm not running away, I don't want to run away from debt, but I also don't want any legal action on me or imprisonment because that's going to ruin my chance of having a good career.
All I ask is a bit of help, any amount that I can add to what I already have so I can pay them off. I am striving hard to find a full-time so that I can add onto the amount I am saving to pay them off. However, finding a job now is a bit difficult and I take whatever I can.
I do hope someone, or anybody can help me, I just need to close this problem, so I can concentrate on helping my family, together to get up and have a fairly good life again.
To those who are willing to help, thank you, your generosity means a lot to me and my family. My only return is prayers for you, a big thank you from the bottom of my heart.
To those offended by my request, I humbly apologize, I do not mean to pass on this burden to anyone, however, it is too big of a burden for me to bear any more, and I only ask for your understanding.
