I am asking for a loan or donation of $200,000, to help buy a house and pay off some bills. I am able to repay this loan at $2000 per month for 10 years. There would probably be times when I could pay more than this, but from a budget stand point I wouldn’t want to commit myself to more.
I am a single mom of 3 children, we are not poor by any means but probably sitting on the lowest rung of middle class society. I have a good job that I have been at for over 5 years and just received a promotion.
I had my two older children when I was very young, before I even graduated high school, but I received my diploma and even have some college under my belt. We have not seen their father for almost 9 years now and he is only required to pay $300 a month in child support for them. They are wonderful well-rounded children that make me very proud every day to be their mother.
I divorced my youngest child’s father a little over a year ago and probably should have done it sooner, he was abusive and as the years progressed he became more aggressive, but I did finally get the courage to kick him out and I will say it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My kids and I are finally free and able to enjoy our lives in peace and quiet.
I have made some bad decisions when I was younger, but everything I have always done was to benefit my children whether it ended up being the right decsions or not. My family is my whole world, I work and I take care of my kids and I am just asking for some help.
I am not telling you any of this for sympathy, but to give you a little background. My parents raised me to be strong and independent and I am finally starting to take that back.
I am truly just looking to make the life of my children better.
If you have taken the time to read all of this, I truly thank you and appreciate the consideration.
