Worse off was the fact that he was down with cancer, making his wife, Amina, the sole breadwinner of the family.
The bank was making ready to take ownership of the properties when luck smiled on the family.
A businessman turns their life around
A report by New Indian Express indicates that the couple were rescued and put back on their feet by a businessman in India named Yusuf Ali.
YEN.com.gh gathered that Ali had visited Panangad village in India to meet one Rajesh and his family who rescued him after his helicopter crash-landed earlier this year.
Amina upon getting wind that the businessman was in that area stormed the place and relayed her plight to him.
Ali out of compassion then ordered his co-workers to pay off the entire loan which totaled GHc28k and also gave them GHc3.8k to offset medical bills for Syed.

Sherman Merricks, sharing a photo of his family members on LinkedIn, stated that he had been struggling with a debt load for years.
The debts hanging around his neck frustrated him that he resolved to pay it little by little till he died.
Amidst his frustrations, Sherman said God spoke to him and gave directions. He said God told him to be a man of his words and pay back all the money.
"...Then, one day God spoke to my heart and said be a man of your word and pay it back ASAP! Don’t owe anyone a dime. Now, I was like this is going to take forever but I was willing to do whatever it took. We paid off a couple small things immediately to get the ball rolling so that we could get some small wins and gain confidence."
