Entering the Path to Financial Security
Thandi was feeling buried by rental arrears and past due bills that continued to pile higher and higher. She had been diagnosed with a medical condition and is not cleared to work, which significantly cut into her income.
Although she had applied for SSDI, she was waiting for approval, and sought the help of a financial coach to help her through this rough patch. Thandi’s coach worked with her to cut expenses, beginning with avoiding fee charting ATMs.
When she received her tax refund, she was relieved to be able to pay off her past due utility bills, and she still had $100 left to begin an emergency savings fund! Thandi now feels confident in her ability to reach her first financial goal of saving $500 dollars!
