I suggest taking the time to read the information on this site (which is here to TEACH how credit works) and work on building your credit score.  I did that and used the financial tools like the score simulator before taking a deep breath and trying for a balance transfer card, which I got.  Right now, your chances of getting that balance transfer are pretty slim.  Since we can't see your financial information, specific suggestions on what to do can't be made. It shouldn't take very long, though and the benefits of a good score are numerous.

With your current score and presuming no negatives on the report, you will find it unlikely to secure a card with the line of credit you seek.   You'd be better off dumping all available cash onto that debt to get the amount reduced.
