Looking for private money? Start with the people who know you and love you best- friends and family. You’re not asking that much. Give them some kind of collateral that they value.
You should also address the credit issues. Get a second or third job and use the money to pay off the bad debts. Once you show people that you intend to pay off debts regardless of the personal sacrifice (give up the cell phone, the cable tv, the lunches out), you will find plenty of money.
