Sasha is a single mother of two. When she joined the 1,000 in 1,000 program at Family Foundations, she was earning only $10,000 per year. Her high debt and low credit score added to her burdens. She was determined to work with Family Foundations to build a better life for her family.
Her hard work paid off. She landed a great job as a customer service representative and within 18 months had increased her annual income to $38,500. She wanted to use her income correctly by diligently paying down her debt and settling accounts that had gone into collections. She also worked with her financial counselor to dispute incorrect items on her credit report.
Through hard work and perseverance, she improved her credit score by almost 200 points!
