No Pay Due- How do I help the Soldier

Top, one of my Soldiers has informed be of a situation with another Soldier in another unit. The Soldier improperly received money they were not entitled to. As such finance is now taking back all the money at once leaving this Soldier broke. The Soldier's asked his leader for an AER Loan and was told the loan would not help him. The Soldier then requested to see finance to work out a repayment plan. The Sergeant stated this would be pointless as well. When the Soldier asked what he was supposed to do to get by day to day the NCO said to borrow money from friends...which is my Soldier.
