Italian term or phrase: impossidente
sono impossidente ed esercito l'attività di carpintiere

English translation:no independent means of existence/no assets
Explanation:
possidente: (Devoto) persona i cui principali cespiti sono rappresentati dallo sfruttamento di proprieta' fondiarie
possidenza: il rapporto giuridico derivante dal possesso di un bene

I see impossidente as someone who has no independent means, no assets; not so much as someone who is impoverished or bereft. He owns no land or real estate, and lives with the proceeds of his work.

Asset (Codeluppi): bene, cespite, disponibilita' finanziaria, attivita',
Assets (Codeluppi) attivo patrimoniale, disponibilita' finanziare, avere, cespiti, beni, averi, patrimonio.

buon lavoro

bereft/destitute


Explanation:
From the Latin word possede derived from the verb possidire, or to possess. The prefix 'im' denotes a negative or lack of possession. The best English words would be bereft or destitute because they signify the lack of that which is needed. As in the context, "I'm bereft, and doing the labor of a carpenter."
