Hi, I am a single mother with 2 young kids, age 7 for my princess and age 9 for my prince. I am currently in a sorry situation. I used to have 2 businesses, a beauty salon which I operate for 10 years and a distribution office dealing with skincare/beauty equipment which I operate for 5 years. I should say my life was rather comfortable at that point of time. In fact I couldn't have ask for more. Unfortunately I suffered a business failure 2 years ago due to a change of the government policies in my country. And the aftermath of the business closure, I also loss my house and car which is still under financing and ended up heavily in debts to most banks. In view of the above mentioned, I do not have any money to rent a flat/house to live with my kids, so they are sent to live in my mother's house which I have to pay a small sum of money as rental for my kids and their nanny (my domestic helper) to stay there. As for me I bunk in with a friend who has a spare room which of course I have to pay rental too.
To make matter worse, I receive no help from friends. I went thru a stage of depression, self-denial and cried often. A former business associate then offered me a job in his newly set up trading company and advance 1 year salary for me to help pay off some personal debts to get me started in his company. During that 1 year I receive no salary and tried my best to bring the company to a profitable level so that I may get some commission to survive my daily expenses. Things didn't go well, business didn't pick up as expected and I didn't get paid till this day. Though I wasn't paid and remain broke most of the times yet I couldn't quit because of the kindness (1 year advance salary) he bestowed onto me when I failed my business and was after by debtors. To help myself I gather whatever money I may have to start an online shop selling ladies fashion and accessories in April 2015. I truly enjoyed my new career and things being to improve but slow due to the lack of fund...
So here I am seeking some help to raise some fund for me to turn my life around;
1. To replenish stocks for my online shop so that I have more varieties to offer to my customers.
2. To have advertising budget to drive traffic to my online shop, to execute sales promotion and generate sale revenue.
3. To have money to take over my current lease on the unit which I am currently staying in Singapore and let my kids move in when my flatmate move out on 15th September.
In case you might be thinking as to why I didn't approach any of my relatives or the government sector for help. I wish to clarify here that I have no siblings and not at all close to any of my relatives. And the government refused to help me as they said I do not belong to the lower class of society and is neither handicap in anyway so I do not qualify for any financial assistance. Reason for that is because I have a nanny (domestic helper) from Philippines who has been taking care of my 2 beautiful kids the very day they were born. My nanny is currently living with my kids in my mother's house to care and watch over my kids on my behalf. My ex-husband is contributing to my nanny's salary, their food and daily expenses for my kids. I took care of their rental in my mother's house, school bus fee and textbooks for my kids. Not forgetting that I have to also take care of my own rental, food and mobile bills which actually weight heavily on my shoulder given the fact that I had literally no income right now.
So here I am hoping to raise some fund for my new online business and restart my life all over again.
