Hi my name is Isabella (21), I live with my parents and my little brother (64,54,16 y.o each). We all live in Argentina. Maybe not everyone knows about our country and its economy but due to it, its so hard to have a decent life. The levels of poverty keep going up each month, our government tries to “fix” it by putting more taxes but the main problem is that yes they take your money, the money you work hard to get, the money that you NEED to buy food, pay bills, buy a house BUT you never see any improvement in the way we live as a country; in fact we all are a bit more poor by day. It’s so sad that I have to see my self in this position right now, but I don’t find any other way to find help.
My dad is 64 and my mom is 54, in Argentina once you hit the age of retirement you might be in the position of losing your job (99% chances of that happening because no one wants an elder working because of how much you have to pay to them and the risks of having an elderly person working). My dad only has till the end of this year, he turns 65 on December 19th.
With this all I’m trying to explain is that we only have a place to live because we live at the place he works. It’s not our apartment, therefor we will get kicked out once they make him retire.
My mom a year ago had to leave Argentina and go to Spain, in hopes of getting a job to save up money but we’re a family of 4, we have needs and things we have to pay for such as college, high school, medicine, clothing, FOOD. My mom wants to come back because she can’t take being away from us anymore, she has depression from it, she’s working so hard and we still can’t save money to even buy a house.
It’s so hard finding a job nowadays here, there are only a few chances, and I haven’t been able to get one. I even considered quitting my studies to clean houses but I’m so close to having my degree.
Ever since the covid19 started everything got harder and we’re getting rushed to make decisions.
I’m in desperate need of help. I need to find a place to stay, my main dream is to find us a house or apartment to buy. I want to buy a place only because renting a place is not a fix, the prices of rents keep going up and up and you never know how that’s going to turn. I’m just looking to buy a really small place, only to have a roof to live in.
If you’re able to help, I’m so thankful and I will never be able to thank you enough but if you cant help because you’re also struggling, just know that by sharing this post you’re already helping me and that I hope nothing but the best for everyone. Maybe one day we will all be able to live in a better world.
Much love from me and my family.
