Hello. I am a university student who is in need of assistance. My father is the sole breadwinner for my family. My mother is a housewife and my brother was made redundant by his workplace a little before the coronavirus became a pandemic. My father is currently paying off my tuition costs for the years I’ve already completed and my brother was helping, but since he is now unemployed, he is no longer able to help. Also, my father’s workplace had closed down for a few months due to the pandemic but hopefully he’ll be able to go back to work at the end of August.
Last year when I needed to finish paying my tuition, my mother had asked someone from our church for help and she gave her the money. My father is already preoccupied with paying off the other costs, so he was unable to provide the amount needed for this instance. We thought we’d be able to get the money to the person we borrowed the money from by March of this year, since that was the agreed upon time. However, with the pandemic and my brother’s redundancy, we were not able to pull through. The borrower gave us extra time, but we still have not come up with the amount. She called my mother recently asking for the money. The amount owed is US $2,000.
I am asking for assistance please. I really want to re-pay her because it was so kind of her to lend the money to us, so that I could have been able to register for my courses and not be barred from examinations. I asked other persons for assistance, even persons who were in a position to help, and they did not help, but she was kind enough to help out. I feel so awful not being able to give her back her money. My friend’s mother’s friend overseas even offered to help me when I needed the money to pay my tuition, but she flaked. She had offered to send money to help pay off my tuition costs for the semester and then she just disappeared. She got my hopes up and then bailed on me without an explanation.
Thank you for reading my request and I would be really grateful if I could receive the assistance I am asking for. I can guarantee you that my request is sincere and I am an honest person who just really wants to pay the money I owe to this kind person. She didn’t have to help out but she did, and that’s why I am so eager to repay her.
