Real Stories: Sudden health issues meant she couldn’t repay her personal loan

Sue was a career nurse and had recently taken out a significant personal loan to pay off a handful of debts, and then she suffered a serious medical event. She was unable to work and therefore unable to pay this loan arrangement.

Our financial counsellor, Christine, went into mediation with the creditor on Sue's behalf.

Watch Christine share more and what the outcome was in the video case study snapshot above.

For the detailed story, go to the case study podcast and listen to Christine share the steps she took and what the outcome was.
