Well i am not a vet and so can only give you my opinion on what may be the trouble.
Either she has been bitten under the leg and it has become infected and it has also stressed her out making her not use her litter tray. Or
She has some sort of skin allergy or has mites or has been bitten by an insect etc. This may also be making her feel unwell and could also be the reason for the pooping.
Best advice i'm afraid is that she should see a vet as soon as possible to get it checked out. If money is a problem then perhaps you could see if there are any animal charities near you that can help or perhaps offer your services for a couple of hours at the vets, cleaning or tiding etc it is always worth asking.
Hope you can sort something out soon. best wishes Kate
