We are a family of five based in South Africa. My husband went through 2 retrenchments, first one happened at the end of 2008 and he only got another job in 2012 and got retrenched again in 2014. We currently live in a one bedroom flat and survive through freelance work and the money we get barely get us through the month as we have to pay for rent, school fees for our three kids, basic groceries and utility bills. We really need help to buy a home for our family, and be able to rebuild ourselves. We don't qualify for any bank financing to buy a home due to the inconsistent income we get from freelance work. We need help to buy a home outright and are willing to pay back the money when we have re-established our life. I do handcraft work and try to sell at flee-market to supplement, but we eventually want to start our own business to help sustain our family and be able to pay for our children's education and give them a solid home.
