My mother is currently in a big debt. She is working in Saudi Arabia. Her 2 main debts are 21,000 rial/riyals and its rate is 8%. Her other debt is 8,000 rials/riyals and it's rate is 7%. To make it short, she had acquired this debt by selflessly providing our needs in the Philippines even before I was born. I am already 31 years old now. I have my own family and my efforts or even my whole salary in a month would have no effect on the debt that she is into. The reason that I have reached this is because my mother would probably be retired around 6 months from now. She will get her retirement money which would probably not be enough to pay her debt. So she plans to ask for extension after her 6 months but there is no guarantee she can continue. Even if she continues to pay I don't think she can recover because she can't even pay the minimum of each of her debt. I want my mother to have a stress free life after she retires. At least this time, she can enjoy what she has worked for all this years. I don't think it would be enough for her to enjoy her lifetime but at least seeing her free from debt would make me feel that I have returned all the support, selfless love, and all she has given to me, my brother, sister and father.
Until now, she is still supporting my father, who recently was diagnosed to have Parkinson's disease, a disease where muscle weakness increases. In addition, she is still supporting my youngest sibling for schooling. She gets to trouble because she is selflessly doing everything for my family. I don't know but she has gave everything for us. I'm not a good writer. I can't even describe how this debt has been felt long time ago maybe 12 years ago, it has suddenly burden each everyone of us. What more for my mother. And the worst of all, she has no choice but to still get money from this people since she cannot provide even for her needs anymore. She has no choice. She will be 60 years old this April 4. My father's physician told my mother to stay in the Philippines but she still tried to settle everything. I can't imagine how hard it has brought to her, leaving her husband even if she does not want to. Even if it like this trouble does not end.
