    Loan for part-time worker/Single parent 25th Jan 11 at 12:34 PM
    Hi there, I'm making this thread on behalf of someone else who can't access the net.

    Basically, she is in a real tight situation at the moment. She currently is living in a cottage with her ex-partner (Father of the child), they no longer are together so they have decided to part their ways, and their move out date is approximately a week. But the problem is, is that she's going to move out, but she doesn't have any money at all to pay the deposit for the rental, as the majority of places will want a months rent in advance etc. So we did manage to find her a real nice place for her and her child to live in, but he wanted 1500 deposit, so we looked at getting her a loan of this amount, over about 4 years which works out as around 60 a month average, which she can afford easily, but loan companies will refuse her based on the fact she works part-time. I even tried getting one for her, as I knew she could afford it (Her credit history is excellent) as also she would be receiving quite a bit of benefits, but alas, I only work part time too.

    She cannot move back home, as due to unfortunate circumstances, she has no family to speak of. She will be put into emergency housing if she cannot find a home for her or her child, which obviously neither of us want, as we want a nice home for her and her child.

    So please, if anyone has any advice, on where to get loans for part-time workers, or anything else, reply.
