Hi world and possible donators.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my moms story.
Like all middle class income earners she was invited to take out a loan to 'help aid' her through a financially difficult time. She used this to purchase her not so good car but for her it was still necessary to get her to and from work still today. At many points in our life she was the only income earner, always making sure to provide for her children with very little. She is a strong women with a kind heart.
For the past 3 years she has been struggling to make due at the start of every month after her debts go off and her loan being the most expensive chunk that takes 75% off of her salary. Still 2 more years to go!!
She does not get to reap the rewards of working hard and seeing her full earnings. Which is why I would like to ask for assistance in getting her to that point and to get rid of the loan which my siblings and I cannot do alone. We have and continue to help our mom up until this point but it is a never ending cycle and draining our funds to be able to assist which is why I put this plea together.
My father passed away two years from heart failure. Unfortunately stresses are real. He struggled in his later years to work long hours and provide very much because of his health deteriorating. Thankfully at the time my brother, sister and myself were out of school and able to work and still contribute in our small way.
My sister has seasonal work and spends most of her salary towards helping with my moms rent, she is currently running out of her savings money whilst looking for her future job (she will get it timing), myself I have helped my mom move to a place more suited to her and my younger sisters budget, provided some furniture and made it cozy for her. I try contribute towards food as much as I can but I stuggle with my own budget to be able to help get through the month all the time...
My brother works hard and always steps in to help with big amounts in desperate times. Us 3 kids are really needing the help to get rid of the loan to help my mom see her salary and for us not run out of money helping our mom. No matter what we will always be there for her but with this loan there is no end point to this feeling of helplessness on all our parts.
We are all running low and I may need to look for a better paying position to be able to help more, its a process . so please here my plea today.
Thank you so much!
