My name is Darja and I am 32 years old and I live in Slovenia (Europe). Right now I am in really bad situation with my family (my parents). 10 years ago my parents were set-up with wrong contract in arranging cash loans. The were set-up with sales contract instead of the mortgage contract for small amount. 10 years after because of bad legal practice in our county we lost our home. We lost all the money in legal costs. It all came that far so now we are renting a house so we can live somewhere and it is hard. First of all because my parents are already retired. My mother is actually getting half of pension. 10 years ago she overcome breast cancer, but after that she was never healthy enough to work again. Right now she is still waiting for confirmation that she is proper candidate for full pension. I also work for small amount because it is really hard to get a good job in our country. Slovenia has a extremely big number of unemployment. There is no jobs. Besides everything I just finished therapy against panic attacks and I still have to be careful what I do. But anyway we are fighting alone. We manage to develop our own company with natural fabrics involved. But we are stuck. No money no proper development. Sales is bad... No money no marketing. So after one year of positive thinking and work we ended up with debts, rented house which is not cheap and not enough money to buy basic things for living. But if we want to run our own business it is sort of only option. We still hope for the best and we are working to fight this, but we are afraid that we lose everything becouse of our debts. We want to make our dreams come true. And that is run our own business, buy a home somewhere in the future. Have enough food, heating in our home... simple things actually, but right now I feel that we are losing our fight. We never asked for donation and it was a big step for us to speak up. But we did. The donation will help us to move forward.
I know it is a lot to ask, but I can say that any kind of support will help.
