Debt and its consequences increase, and the problem deepens and becomes complicated until things become entangled and the escape or declaration of bankruptcy becomes an escape from this disaster. These solutions, which are often based on the scheduling or purchase of their debts, have led to an increase in the size of the debt and compounded their obligations to the total creditors because of their inability to meet their debts as well as the burden of their services, which compounded and deepened their financial crises.
