sorry, but if you can't get a loan from the bank it means that you're doing something wrong.
most of the time, banks are more than happy to give you a loan, if they have the feeling that your business is solid. that you will make much more money out of the money they're giving you.

and if you wonder, why you don't get a loan from your bank, go out to a computer shop, buy the cheapest netbook with windows you can find, find a way to buy a legit copy of ms publisher (from ebay, your preferred computer shop or microsoft's website).

if you can't afford it, it means that you should not do business with people handing you publisher files. or your time to set the correct bold and italics is not worth 500 bucks.

or try one of the free web services you have been pointed to or support prokoudine's eventual effort in reverse engineering the .pub format.

have a nice evening
