Success Story: Nikkii and Reed

March 23, 2015

Nikkii and Reed are making a positive investment in their future through United Way’s RealSense financial education classes and money coaching.

Seeking to improve and establish their individual credit scores, the couple enrolled in free educational classes last spring and have since been on their way to financial stability. They teamed up with Rachel, a volunteer money coach, who helped them develop a plan and cheered them on toward their fiscal goals.

Through responsible money management, Nikkii recently paid off a burdensome car loan and is eliminating her credit card debt. Reed’s improved credit score has helped him qualify for lower interest rates. As they continue on the path to prosperity, the couple hopes to use their savings to buy a home.
