Charlie is a single dad working two jobs to survive. He lives paycheck to paycheck. Growing up, high interest loans were just a part of life. So, when he was unable to pay his bills, the first place he went was to a payday lender that offered him a loan with an 89.7% interest rate. Even working 70 hours a week through multiple jobs, he wasn’t making enough to meet his family’s basic needs. The hole was so deep that he couldn’t crawl out. The constant worry made him feel sick, all of the time.
Charlie is just one of many hardworking neighbors who need more than a band-aid to overcome their financial difficulties.
