Hi :

I have been out of the workforce for 10 years due to a back related injury 10 years ago. I have now been cleared to go back to work.
I have over 20 years of experience driving 5th wheel livestock and flatbed trailers while Dairy farming.

I have been trying to finance through my local bank for a used pickup and trailer. I have been turned down 2 times now.
My problem with the banks financing me is because I have been on SSI for 10 years my credit rating is only 620. That should be high enough to finance. The problem is I don't have a job history or employer now for 10 years.

I would like to know if one of these hotshot companies would help me get started?

I filled out an application for a loan from crete carrier to purchase a truck. I'm guessing they will see I'm on SSI and think I have no way to pay for the truck. I thought that they might finance me if I worked for them though.

I am 54 years old and ready to start immediately if possible.

Thank, You
