Hi! I am so sorry to have to bother you because of my personal problems.
The past few months have been particularly hard for me, especially financially.
I work as an English online teacher. I teach Japanese, Koreans, Thai, Taiwanese, Vietnamese and other Asians. The pay is honestly not that big but with hard work, I can survive. I teach 10-12 hours a day, earning P120 per hour, or roughly $2.30 per hour.
Last year, my sister, my only family (since my parents and only brother have all passed away), encouraged me to invest in her Car Buy and Sell business. She and her partner assured me that the business is good and yields great profit. I was excited and I thought, finally, I can take a break from teaching. I stopped teaching for a few months, only opening a few classes every now and then to stop my teaching account from getting deactivated.
Unfortunately, I had to learn that we should not invest in things that we don't know anything about. The business that my sister encouraged me to invest in had gone bankrupt and I had to suffer the loss. My saving were gone!
I went back to teaching last month but the backlog of my bills are unbearable. Rent, internet, electricity, water, tuition for my 2 nieces, food on the table. I suffered from depression and didn't know what to do. I wanted to stop moving on.
You know what kept me moving on? My CATS. I read that when their humans die, the cats don't understand why, and they will keep on waiting for them. I have to keep on living for them.
I have already settled some of my bills especially my nieces' tuition for school. To continue working, I need electricity and internet. Unfortunately, I haven't paid these bills for 2 months and they are due for disconnection.
I hope you can find it in your hearts to help me settle these bills so that I can continue working. I can get back on my feet financially in 2 to 3 months and if you can help me now, I will take it as a debt and promise to repay you come March or April.
Please help me continue to work, and my 2 nieces to continue studying, and my cats to continue living.
