Meet Bev, who used a GetControl Loan to get on top of her credit card debt.
Bev is 77 years old, and rents a pensioner flat in Tirau from the Waikato District Council. She isn’t in good health, so her daughter Raewyn shared her story and how her Financial Mentor and a loan Ngā Tāngata Microfinance helped Bev to get on top of her credit card debt.
“Mum had no savings and just lives off her pension. I hadn’t realised that she even had a credit card until things started to unravel,” explains Raewyn. “One day she asked me if I could drop her off to an appointment and mentioned that she only had $11 for her grocery shopping. This set off the alarm bells for me, so I mentioned that I had used a Financial Mentor in the past to help me with budgeting and asked if she needed help.”
