So, you don't like the Biblical method of working off one's debts?

You mean this?

"At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.
And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD's release." (Deu 15:1-2)

It's too bad that these people who are having such a hard time of it don't seem to belong to any church. I say this because almost any church I know would help them out with the relatively small (but exceedingly personally difficult to them) things which drove (no pun intended) them to the loan shark in the first place. This is where friends, family, church, community prove to be so valuable.
