Hi everyone, we are Leslie and Sean. We are Roger's childrens. We asking you some help for our dad.
Dad's got his own transfer company, that he created in 2007, he's self employed. During last winter season, dad had an small stroke and had a heart operation a few days ago.
He looked after us all the time, borrowed money to buy everything to furnish a rented apartment and has never recovered... Money has been hard to come since.
For his future, he would like to keep his transfer company (the only income that he's got) but at the moment he cannot continue on the roads by himself, he will have to employ someone to work for him all year round, but he needs to buy a vehicle as he sold the old one in May.
He has a second hand one awaiting delivery (he has already paid 6000€ towards it) but his problem is he has to borrow 35000€ to finish buying it...if he cannot work himself then borrowing that money is bad. If he does not buy then it is not possible for him to work and to earn a living, so what can he/we do? If he has money to cover the first years loan repayments while he recovers from his illness then he can at least pay someone else to earn him some money and keep his business, and his hopes for life, going...
After nearly 30 years of French tax payments and social security contributions all that the French system is offering him during his recovery of one year is 10€ per day...
My brother and I would like to help him to buy that car for his future, but we are young (22 and 24 ) and we don't have enough money to help him...
He helped my brother and me all our life to grow up in good conditions and come to our aid, now it's our turn to help him to get through this bad moment... Please help us !!!
Thanks in advance, Cordialement, Leslie and Sean
