Hints to help you break the debt cycle

Case study #5

Pay bills/utilities

Shanae got a large electricity bill of $1200, she didn’t have enough to pay it so she went to a pay day lender. She ended up behind in repayments to the lender and then found herself behind in rent.

She went to a financial counsellor and they advocated for her with her utility provider for a hardship payment plan and showed her ways to reduce her energy costs. Shanae realised she could have avoided the pay day lender and saved herself hundreds of dollars.
