I think my MacBook Air SSD is dead. Help me.

MacBook Air - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
My MacBook Air SSD died, or at least I believe it did. I was using my MacBook air (mid 2013) and all of a sudden my Mac freezes, I didn’t know what to do so I just pressed the power button and my Mac restarted with a folder with a question mark.

After googling the issue, I tried resetting PRAM, booted into safe mode, nothing worked. Then I tried to boot into recovery and connected my time machine drive to restore from the backup. The recovery booted from the internet and I couldn’t find my boot drive in the disk utility. Now I think it’s a dead SSD.

I bought this in August of 2013, so it’s over 4 years old. Is there anything that can be done ?

I am really tight on budget and seeing on the internet that it could cost me somewhere north of 600 USD is scary. I live in India.
