“You can’t just look at the right now. It’s one step at a time. I’m going to take my credit score as high as it will go…and then I’ll have more choices, more freedom.”
For years, Willie had been working to find the best pathway to improve his personal finances. “I have tried countless attempts, and spent thousands of dollars to various agencies attempting to repair my credit.” In fact, he spent more than $5,000 with so-called ‘credit repair agencies’ and saw no improvement to his credit report. It wasn’t until Willie came across information about Prosperity Connection’s programs that he felt like he had the resources he needed to make progress toward his goals.
Willie stated, “I’m a member of St. Louis Community Credit Union, and one day as I was exiting the bank, I saw some literature inviting anyone to come here [Prosperity Connection].” Willie decided to attend the class ‘Living with Bad Credit’, which helped him to evaluate his options, as well as get connected with Coach Evette Baker. After going through the intake process and getting down to work with his coach, Willie was able to establish a plan to eliminate debt and build his credit score.
“This program was the best thing that could have happened for me…Although I still got some way to go, I am eternally grateful to God for positioning me with the right company and the right people,” said Willie about his experience with Prosperity Connection. Since starting this journey with his financial coach, Willie has increased his credit score by 108 points and eliminated outstanding debt by $8,563! Willie continues work toward his goals, the biggest being his dream to own his own home so that he can watch his grandchildren play in the backyard.
