Unhappy waiting because of money

hey guys, is someone here who had to/have to waiting because of money? someone who didn't have support from parents, home? let me show you my case...
i'm still student. in three months i ll start the last year of my study. i wanted to get step1 before i finish university but it proved impossible. normaly i must to working in a holidays to get a cash to live for all year. my life is looking like that from the moment when i finished high sql. so i decide i ll start after graduation.
the second point is that i have to do a 1 year of intership after grad. i ll get a money for that but it's like 530$/month. you know, you must to eat, live... so it's a bit impossible to get a 'step' with this salary (ok maybe one in a year when i ll be living in a low cost) after year of this intership and after exam of all of studies i can start a residency and start to earning more money... then i'll get a cash for all but rom this moment it ll be like 3-4 years... I have nothing for sale like house or car. Did you have some ideas to shorten the way???

all advices weigh in gold

Go to websites of banks like Wells Fargo. They offer student loans specifically tailored for medical students taking the USMLE. Their loan includes expenses for the exam, review materials, interview travel costs, etc. Good luck!

Is that an american bank? I heard it's impossible to be given loans in the US as IMGs. Is that true?

Default Wells Fargo Bank

These are the requirements:

But, what does it mean you have to be US citizen or national... How can I become one, if I don't get the money first?!
I'm going round in circles.

I support you full time! You're not alone. I'm in a similar situation myself, for example.
