A journey towards debt freedom.

Nina’s Journey Out of Debt

Nina’s story is similar to that of many Canadians. She received a credit card at 19 years old and having no formal education around personal finances or credit usage, modeled her spending habits after her parents. As she became more comfortable using credit to make purchases, Nina soon realized that her credit card balance wasn’t going down.

Testimonial speech

You don’t need to deal with debt alone

I never thought that I would be someone that would go into debt. I felt ashamed, I was jealous that everybody else had it all together except for me. When I heard about credit counselling, it just seemed like the right idea. I guess the big takeaway is just how, taken care of I felt. And then very quickly I just felt very light as if that big problem that was sitting on my shoulders wasn’t just mine anymore. What a positive impact credit counselling had on my life.
