Any money I can borrow for my bills

Postby Sejkora » Sun Aug 17, 2014 10:13 am

Hello. I'm single with no kids and lost my job. I'm already behind on my bills. I would be happy to pay any money back from a loan once I find a job again. Please send me any info on assistance I might be able to have... I was in the Air Force 14 years ago.

We would never recommend to borrow money to pay bills. Bad idea. What would you do to pay off the loan if you can't even pay the expenses you have now and have no job? It will just put you into an endless cycle. Maybe you can try a no interest loan from the Jewish foundation, and the advantages are they work with clients and you will not accrue interest. So read more on no interest loan products.

I live in Houston Texas. I have five kids. I am currently out of work. My monthly income is only 721.00 a month. I pay water, gas, light, and rent but my monthly income does not cover all my bills and loans I owe, so I find myself behind a lot. For the month of August I’m short due to the fact that I was behind on my water and lights so bad they disconnected the services. I don’t have the rent for August and I’m afraid he will ask me to move. Can you please help me get caught up with my bills, or tell me how to borrow money just for a few weeks, before my kids start school this year?

Sounds like you are in a bad situation if your income does not cover your current bills and you already have loans. So why the heck would you want to borrow more money. Bad idea. You need to try a credit counseling agency in Houston. Read more.
Get advice from them on next steps. As taking out another loan is not the answer.

I am a therapist and have a client living on $950 per month disability. She took a big financial hit due to having open heart surgery to repair a birth defect. She can no longer afford her rental and will be homeless or hopefully find a cheap motel until she can find something more affordable. She is also trying to go back to work part time, but has not found a job yet so she needs money for her bills. She has an adult daughter who had to stop working to care for her during her recovery. She is also looking for work, may need to borrow money, and has a part time job.

If your income is $950 / month, and your bills are at that level/higher, you do not want a loan as that will put you deeper into the hole. Therefore try to get cash without borrowing money through various work from home jobs, selling items, and more.
