Shame me, but I just can't pay back SLB loan

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I strongly agree that government-issued student loans should be paid back and that there should be consequences, but publishing the names of delinquents won't solve anything.

I am a borrower and I have been paying back, but not regularly. The loan officer said that he was going to publish my name in The Gleaner, and I told him to do what he had to. It's not that I don't want to pay, but I just cannot afford to because I am unemployed. Family and friends promise to help, but they just don't have it.

I graduated in June 2012, and until this date, I have been seeking employment without success. What else can I do?
