Story of Success

Lesley Ridge, CCUFC has counseled a UCU member for a few years, the journey began when the member was a college student and reached out to her for some financial advice. At that time, the member had no savings, needed to buy textbooks, and had a few maxed out credit cards with a credit score that was not favorable.  After weekly sessions filled with conversation topics of sticking to a budget, paying bills on time, and maintaining a savings account, this member was able to get back on the right track.

Within a short period of time, they were able to increase their credit score, pay the credit cards down, and started maintaining a substantial savings.  At a final meeting, the member thanked Lesley and was able to purchase a car, take a long awaited trip, and was able to pay off the credit cards.
