    In your situation there are a couple of different ways forward. You could look at either a Debt Agreement or go for Debt Consolidation.

    A Debt Agreement involves negotiating with the people that you owe money to. These negotiations lead to an agreement which then becomes legally binding. This agreement can involve a number of measures including periodic payments, paying less than you owe, a moratorium, a transfer of property in full or part payment.

    Debt consolidation entails the taking out of a single loan to pay off many other loans. This is often done to secure a lower interest rate, or for the convenience of servicing only one loan rather than many.

    Debt consolidation can simply be in the form of a number of unsecured loans being consolidated into another unsecured loan. In many cases, however, debt consolidation consists of a loan secured with an asset (usually a house or apartment) which serves as collateral. This type of consolidation allows all debts to be rolled into your mortgage, with the collateralisation allowing the lender to offer a more favourable interest rate.

    The following are some examples of debt consolidation and how debt consolidation loans can be beneficial for people who are struggling with debt stress:
