y Hello, everybody.
I'm in the need of asking your help because my family (my mother and my brother) and I, are going through a very complex economic situation for some years now. By the time I write this, we only have 0.50¢ in our pockets.
Everything started when my father passed away without leaving a will. He had a business in which my mother worked and they supported us financially, but such income was lost when we had to sell his belongings to split the money between us and the others families he had. That money was used primarily to start several businesses that we didn't have the luck they flourished in the way we would have liked.
We are in the need of selling personal belongings to have some money but we are running out of useful things to sell; in some of the commercial agreements that we plan, people don't live up to what they promise and don't come to the meeting. Our mother had to sell her childhood home to start another business that hadn't flourished in a 100% but it gives us income from time to time, though the money goes to the credit of our house because we don't want to lose it and the payments of the home services, which we don’t cover altogether. Let’s not even mention the times we have need to go to the doctor, we simply can’t afford it.
My mother is an older woman so she can no longer find a job but she's not yet in the pensionable age to get that help. I, unfortunately, didn't have the opportunity to study a career, as much for the money problems as for untreated mental problems, which for years made truly hard to get out of my house and to interact with people, reasons why it's quite complex to get a job. I learned English on my own, for hobby: I have translated subtitles for movies and series but it has have been unpaid work; I tried to get paid work from that, but without having official studies, it's difficult and I'm certain that my English it's not perfect. I would love to have a career (psychology) to get a job, but right now, the priority it's not having to worry if there's going to be a day where we won't be able to eat.
What I wholeheartedly hope it's that my brother's business prospers to the point we are economically calm and able to save up to start my own business so I can save up for my studies in the future. However, I would like to help my family in whatever way I can and that's why I ask for your help. The money would be exclusively used for payments of services, food and to start saving for my own business, which consists of making Ice Cream Rolls (they have become quite popular and it's not easy to find those in the surroundings).
I know that the internet can be a wonderful place when it comes to helping people, that was what gave me the courage to do this.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read our situation. And if you are able to help us, I hope it comes back to you, multiplied a thousand times.
My best wishes to all of you.
