If there's any worst year in my life, it is the year 2018. Why?
Because I made a silly mistake!

Last year, as an undergraduate i and my friend (course mate) decided to be doing project work for fellow finalists on campus.

The business started successfully and we were able to get over 80 students whom we did project for.

After 2 months of sleepless nights, we were able to complete all the projects (from typing to binding)

When it was time to settle all the people we are owing (those who helped us in printing and binding those projects). It was then I know that something horrible has happened to me....! cry

My business partner was doing "the boy is good" to almost everyone he collected their project contract, in short He was doing it on credit for them because they promised to pay him soonest and the money is over 90k! cry

The amount we are owing the binders and printers initially was around N120k but after hustling and selling some of our private stuffs, we were able to pay N70k and we're still owing 50k

The truth of the matter now is that ever since November 2018 till date, my partner is yet to recover 90% of the money outside (90k plus)
Most of them don't pick calls anymore, even the few who manage to pick, they'll keep posting and posting.

Almost everyday, the people we are owing keeps messaging us concerning the money but we couldn't provide anything.

Thay my friend is deeply broke now, I have also engaged in some hustles since that time but all to no avail.
In a bid to make money to pay off the debt, I have spammed everywhere on Nairaland and my social media accounts to get an article writing and logo design job but I still couldn't get any sales. The little ones I managed to get is not even up to 8k

It's a new year again and all the people we're owing are already threatening to do the worst. But there seems to be now way out for now

I can't sleep with my two eyes closed again, I'm always thinking on how to get out of the debt.
I've thought to an extent that suicidal thoughts began to dominate my mind.

I'm an introvert, I have no brother or friend or sister to approach for money.

My father is a retired teacher (the last time he got paid is July )
My mother is a teacher (the govt. Is still owing her more than 5 months salary)
I have no hope anywhere else

I have tried blogging, Fiverr, affiliate marketing, and other internet business. I couldnt gather something tangible from it.

What can I do please?
I'm already developing high blood pressure on this matter...
I'll appreciate any advise sir/ma
