Seeking Partner or Loan against Pending Patents

I am urgently seeking a loan against pending patents or a partner for a patent I have pending. I have a simple Office Action (OA), according to my attorney, that must be submitted or my patent will be deemed Abandoned and I will lose it forever.
The OA was originally due three months ago but I have been forced to extend the deadline because my recent financial situation has left me with very few options to come up with the $2,500 necessary to submit the OA.
The patent is in an area where I have already generated millions in sales with my previous company. I have designed and launched several other types of this product that continue generating profits today. But this is by far the best design and based on firsthand knowledge of the market and experience, I am confident it will generate profits for many years to come.
I do not want to lose the patents so I’m seeking a loan against the patent or a partner that receives percent ownership in exchange for payment of the patent fees.
