Too Much Debt = STRESS!!

CONGRATULATIONS!! If you are here it means that you are taking the first step to managing your debt and bringing some order back to your finances.

Hire Purchase Bills; Multiple Credit Cards;  Over-reliance on Cards; death of a family member divorce,  illness or job loss may cause anyone to rack up considerable debt.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and STRESSED, you can take control of your finances and get on the path to debt-free living.

We can help make payments more manageable by consolidating your debt into one lower-rate loan. It’s easier to budget for just one monthly payment. And with a lower interest rate, you will pay off the loan faster.


Consider consolidating with a personal loan or a home equity loan or line of credit if your credit card debt has gowned or you have loans from a number of sources. Personal loans have fixed rates. That means you don’t feel as if the debt never decreases. This adds to the stress.

If you own a home, consider a home equity loan or line of credit.

Before taking out any loan, consider your ability to meet the payments. If you default, you could put your home at risk.


To determine if loan consolidation makes sense for you, be honest about your debt and expenses.

  1. Calculate your total debt and how much you pay each month.

  2. Figure how long it will take to pay off the debt under the current terms.

  3. Compare this to the payment and term length of the consolidation loan.

  4. Consider how this new payment will affect your budget and keep more money in your savings account for emergencies.

Be ready to make some much needed adjustments to your spending. Consider where you are today financially, and where you’d like to be by the end of a year.
