Six weeks ago, my timing belt broke on my car. It will cost $2500.00 US to fix it. If I don't raise the money, I will lose my job, my car, and my housing, as will the rest of my family.

I have applied for loans at my bank, the financial institution for my car loan, the Veteran's Administration, and other grant and loan facilities and have been turned down for all of them because most people don't need a car to keep their job, but as a pizza delivery driver, I do.

For the past six weeks, I have rented a car on the weekends to keep my job, but the hours and money pay for the rental, not for fixing my car. It's a vicious cycle I'd like to break.

Under normal circumstances, I wouldn't ask anyone for something like this, but these are not normal circumstances. The company I work for was bought last year by an outside source. Their response to the proposed health initiative was to decide all full time employees who were not salaried would be cut back to 30 hours per week. When my car broke, I was getting 25-30 hours per week, working 5 days per week. Due to car rentals being higher during the work week, I've had to give up two of those work days to be able to afford to pay for the rental. It means I'm now working under 20 hours per week just to keep my job.

If I can get the car fixed, I can at least quit paying for the rental, and I might be able to go back to working 5 days a week again.

Please help. I don't have any other resources I can turn to. Feel free to link back to this post if you feel sharing might help.

Thank you.
