“I didn’t have my family to help me with college. I was alone, but I wanted to make something of myself. Well, with not being able to work- because college was so intense for me- I had to take out loans to support myself. I dealt with unemployment for many years because it was during the recession.

I am a 60 year old mom and I work as a janitor to help my son pay his student loans of which $27,000 are federal and $20,000 are private. It is hard because he has very low wages, and I have arthritis which makes my job even harder. Without my help, the loans would default. Darlene
