It is frustrating to have people saying untrue things behind your back and it is disgraceful and sinful behaviour on their part, which God has severely condemned in the Qur'an.
Although difficult, the best thing to do is to ignore what they day and refuse to let it affect you. People like these will find something else to talk about soon enough.
These times are certainly a trial from God to test your resolve and reliance on Him
Pray to God to open a path for you. The following verses are very encouraging to keep reciting; It is the last part of the second and the whole of the third verse of Surat Talaq:
وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجًا
وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ
فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّهُ لِكُلِّ
I pray for a good and early solution for you Inshallah
