No matter how much you’ve contributed to your company, sometimes it’s just not enough. If you find yourself in a situation where you absolutely need to ask your boss for money, here’s a formula I came up with to maximize my chances of getting what I need: I hope it helps you in your own situation..
Letter To Your Boss Asking For A Loan
Dear [Boss Name],
I’m writing to you today because I need a loan. I know that this is a sensitive topic and that most people don’t ask their bosses for money, but I’m hoping that you’ll be able to make an exception in my case.
I’ve been working at [Company Name] for the past five years, and during that time, I’ve learned so much about how to operate within a corporate environment. I’ve also learned about the importance of being responsible with money, which is why I’m writing to you now—because I want to be responsible with my own finances.
The reason why I need this loan is that my old car has broken down and needs repairs or replacement. It’s not even worth fixing anymore! The cost of replacing it will be more than $15,000, which is way beyond what I can afford on my own right now. This isn’t something that will happen overnight—it’ll take months before everything is taken care of and my life feels normal again. The only way for me to get through this difficult time is with the help of someone who cares about me enough to help me out when they know they can afford it without having any issues themselves (like going broke over night).
Dear [boss name],
I am writing to ask if you could lend me $5000. I am currently in between jobs and my financial situation is extremely difficult. I am starting a business that will be providing me with income, but I need some help in the meantime.
[company name] has always been a great company to work for, and I hope you can see this as a way to help me get back on my feet. If you give me the loan and allow me to pay it back over time, I will be able to continue working at your company and contributing to its success.
Best Regards, [your name].
Dear Mr. Jones,
I am writing to ask if you would be willing to loan me $400. I have been working for your company for five years now and have never once taken a day off or called in sick. Please consider this letter as my formal request for the money.
Thank you so much for considering my request!
I am writing to ask for a loan from my company’s employee-loan program. I have been working here for [time period] and have saved $[amount], which I would like to use as collateral for this loan.
I am asking for this loan because I recently had a baby, and my wife and I are struggling to make ends meet. We cannot afford the cost of daycare, so we have been forced to rely on family members to watch our child while we work. Unfortunately, these childcare arrangements are not sustainable in the long term—and so we are looking at options like hiring a nanny or sending our child to school.
I understand that asking for a loan from my company’s employee-loan program may be considered unusual, but it is important to me that you know:
-I am an excellent employee who has never missed a day of work due to illness or vacation in my time at this company.
-My previous employer also offered loans through their employee-loan program, and I was able to pay it off in full after just one year with no trouble at all.
I hope your week has been going well. I know it can be a bit of a struggle to balance work and family life, but I’m sure you’re doing great.
I’m writing today because I have a request regarding my performance here. As you know, we recently started offering [company name] to clients at no cost. This means that we have to pay for the product ourselves, and I’ve tried to make up the difference by working extra hours and taking on additional responsibilities. But in order to keep up with my responsibilities while also fulfilling my other obligations (including taking care of my kids), I need an advance on my paycheck.
I know that asking for money is a sensitive topic, but I hope you’ll understand that this isn’t about me—it’s about being able to do my job effectively so that we can continue offering [company name] free of charge. If you could help me out with an advance of $100 per week until next payday (on [date]), I’d really appreciate it!
Thank you again for all your support over the years—it means a lot!
Dear [boss’s name],
I’m writing to you today because I’m in a bit of a jam. You see, my car has been broken down for weeks and I’ve been having trouble getting to work. Can you please lend me some money so that I can pay to have it fixed? It would mean the world to me if you could help me out with this.
Thanks so much!
Dear [boss name],
I’m writing to you today because I need a little bit of help with some bills. I’ve been working hard for you and your company for the last few months, and I know that you’re a great guy who cares about his employees. So I wanted to ask you for a loan so that I can pay my bills.
I know that this might seem like a lot of money for one person, but it’s not something that I’m asking for lightly—it’s just that my car broke down and now it needs repairs. I’ve worked hard to build up my credit score and keep things in order financially, but when something like this happens, it can really throw everything into disarray. If we could work out an agreement where you sent me some money or paid off part of the bill on my account each month until it was paid off in full, that would really help me out!
Thank you so much!
I’m writing to you today because I am in need of a loan. I have been working for your company for over five years and I believe that my loyalty and hard work should be rewarded. My mortgage is due next month and I don’t have enough money to pay it.
I can assure you that this will be the only time that I ask for help from anyone, and if it is not repaid by next month then I will repay you in full with interest within 3 months.
I would really appreciate any assistance that you can offer me at this time as my family depends on me to provide for them, and unfortunately our financial situation has not improved.
Dear Mr. B.,
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to ask for a loan of $1,000. I am a hard worker and have been at my job for over five years now, so I feel confident that I am trustworthy and will be able to pay back the money you loan me. The reason for my request is that I have a birthday coming up in two weeks, and my wife and I would like to have our first child. We are trying to save up for an adoption fee as well as some other expenses related to having a baby.
I know that it isn’t easy being a boss, so thank you for taking the time to read this letter! Please let me know if there’s any way I can make things easier on you while we wait for the money transfer to take place!
I am writing to you today to ask for a loan. I have been working here for 5 years, and my salary is $2000 per month. I would like to use the loan to pay off some of my debt, as well as make some home improvements.
I know that you are very busy with your own projects, so I thought it would be best if I explained my situation to you clearly.
I am a single mother of two children, who both go to college full time. They have worked hard their whole lives and I want them to be able to stay in school without worrying about money problems at home.
I have always been proud of my ability to manage my finances responsibly, but recently I have found myself in a situation where I cannot pay all of our bills on time every month because of unexpected expenses related to the health care needs of my daughter’s asthma condition. She has suffered from severe allergies since she was an infant, which causes her lungs to become inflamed easily when exposed too often to dust mites and other allergens in her environment.
In addition, our car broke down last week and needs repairs before we can use it again safely on our busy daily commute route between school drop [your name].
Dear [Boss Name],
I am writing to you because I need a loan. I am asking for $3,000. I will pay this loan back within six months, but I need the money to pay off some debt that I have accumulated over the past year.
I know that you are a busy person and may not be able to help me with this request, but I thought it was worth asking anyway. If you would be willing to help me out, please let me know and we can discuss how best to go about doing so.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter, [your name].
Dear [Boss Name],
I’m writing to you today because I need a loan. I’ve been working at [company name] for two years now, and I’m seeking a little financial help from you so that I can get my own apartment.
I understand that it might be unusual for one of your employees to request this kind of thing, but I think it’s important that you know that I am working hard and doing my best every day. Every time I come into work, I give 100%, and I think this is just another way for me to show how much your company means to me.
I would really appreciate it if you could consider giving me the loan money so that I can move out on my own. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this letter!
Dear Mr. Bob,
I would like to ask you for a loan. I know that you are not a bank, but I would be grateful if you could help me with my financial needs. I have been working for your company for 5 years. I am loyal and hardworking, and I know that as long as my job is secure, so is mine. If there is anything you need from me, please let me know.
I hope you are doing well. I am writing to request a loan of $10,000 from my company. This is because I want to buy a house for my family and it will cost me $10,000. I have been an employee at this company for 6 years now and I have always worked hard to deliver the best results in my work. I would appreciate if you could approve my request for this loan so that I can fulfill my dream of owning a house for my family.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
I’m writing to you because I’m hoping to ask for a loan. I’ve been working here for several years, and I have always been a reliable employee. I am currently in need of some money that will help me with my bills and other expenses.
This may seem like a strange request, but please know that I wouldn’t make it if it weren’t important. If possible, please consider helping me out.
Thank you for your time, [name].
