Here is the deal. I need your help. I need to raise money for a loan payment so we don’t lose our home.
My name is Sazeda Azad, I am a professional videographer and currently residing in Mumbai. My profession allowed me to travel around the world and work for some amazing companies, including Nat Geo Traveller India.
I was making good money with my projects, such as shooting for brands like Trivago (India) and working with Dharma Production. Most of the time we were sent around the world for location scouting. And Indian movies shoot a lot in the U.S. and the UK.
I bought a house, took a loan for it, got sanctioned by January 2020. I paid my first installment on March 3rd, and on that very month, India went under Covid19 lockdown. In that period Indian government offered a loan Moratorium, which is basically a period during a loan term when the borrower is not obligated to make a payment. It is a waiting period before the borrower starts making fixed monthly payments.
However what I didn’t realize is that the moratorium period levied heavy interest, and once the Lockdown was over I had to pay my EMI, with those heavy interest. Both for my loan and my credit card which obviously got maxed out during the lockdown period (6 months).
Unfortunately, things only got worse when the lockdown was lifted, film companies around the world remain shut, the travel industry also remains shut. All the sources of my income got shut down. I kept paying for my loans and my credit card bill from my savings and fixed deposit for the past 5 months.
But now I have completely run out of cash. I have no savings left and I have to pay nearly 2 Lac Rupees ($3000 USD) by 17th Jan 2021 and 10 Lac Rupees ($15000 USD) overall. I tried online Jobs, affiliate marketing, and even launched an E-commerce store using Shopify since the lockdown was lifted, but nothing work. I only wasted whatever little money I had.
Unlike the US, the Indian government is not offering stimulus cheques to its citizen, we are on our own, and missing a loan payment means increased interest with a lot of penalties not to mention constant calls and harassment from the collection agents.
