Found a Solution to our Financial Trouble

Posted on December 18, 2007 @ 5:02 pm

My husband lost his job a year ago, and he has not been able to find anywhere else to work.  He did receive a small severance package that ran out about six months ago, and we have been struggling ever since.  You see, I have only been able to find part time work at a diner, and that is barely putting enough food on the table.

What is worse is that we have been using payday loans to get money before my payday in an effort to pay some of each bill each month.  This has shrunk the amount of money I bring home and that has hurt as well. 

Kurt, thought that we could maybe take advantage of the money we have tied up in the house, but when we went to the bank, they would not give us a home equity loan because of our low income level.

We were running out of ideas, and money – we needed a solution before we lost everything.  Thankfully, the help came in the form of a flyer that had information about debt consolidation loans, that would reduce our monthly payments and help us get out of debt.  We are going to apply for one after the holidays, and I hope that it will be the answer to our prayers – if not, I don’t know what we are going to do.
