In 2018, it was something happened in my family. I need to loan US$150,000 to settle. In this 2 year, I have work hard and repay my debt. But since last year, my daughter was born, the outbreak of COVID-19 and the demonstration in Hong Kong. Those things making me depressed on my financial.
I live with my parents and they both are retired. So, I need to support my family including my parents, my wife and my daughter. My daughter was born in last year. I’m very happy to welcome a new life, but I also worry about the expenses. My daughter spends a lot of money on her daily necessities. Although she spends me a lot, I also work hard to fulfill her need.
Since 2019, Hong Kong have some demonstration. A lot of company also cut down the staff. My wife also be cut down and now she still looking for a job. But under this situation, she is difficult to get any job offer. On top of that, the COVID-19 have broken out. Due to COVID-19 is highly infectious virus, I need to prevent the infection and protect my little daughter and my family. I need to keep our home clean and protect myself to prevent bring the virus back to my home. So, I need to prepare some protective gears including detergent, surgical mask, alcohol, sanitizer and other protective materials. Under the COVID-19, all the price of protective gears increased. For example, the surgical mask from US$4.5 to US$45, markup around 10 times. The other protective gears also markup about 3 to 5 times. It is crazy and those things make me spend extra money.
Due to the demonstration & COVID-19, the economic downturn. Specially COVID-19, it makes all industries nearly stopped and the economic around the world become recession. A lot of company cut-off their staff or close-down. Fortunately, I still working with my job, but I don’t know when I will be laid off. I need to support my family (my parents, wife and daughter). The epidemic makes the extra expenses to prevent and protect my daughter and my family. My wife wants to get a job to share my pressure. But she is hard to look for a job and get the offer under this situation.
I want to get out of my financial crisis. I need to repay around US$100,000 debt. At the same time, I also need to support my family specially my daughter. I’m not asking for all of it. Anyone donates US$20 to support my family and relieve my pressure. It will help me a lot. And I’m also highly appreciated if you can help to share my story.
Thank you so much for your time and care.
Hope the COVID-19 will go away soon and bless you with health!!
