How can I get financing for a car as an exotic dancer?

I'm an exotic dancer. I make a minimum of $1,200 a week, but usually more. I'm also an independent contractor and in an all-cash business. How can I get financing for a car if I can't show proof of income?

“Start saving and depositing a certain amount of money a week in the bank. Explain your situation to a lender.
If you can put a big down payment on a car or get a cosigner, you should be able to get the financing you need, especially if you start depositing a certain amount of money in the bank each week and leave it there.
And don’t forget that when you finance a car, you’ll have to pay for full-coverage auto insurance. This may be more expensive than the car note itself, so make sure to shop with the Jerry app to find a great rate from a quality provider.”
