During these difficult times, Vanessa has supported her husband without hesitation. She has managed to juggle bills as well as create a budget that supports the couple on her income, however initially Vanessa struggled with managing all of their expenses and while she was trying to re-adjust her life, she fell behind on some payments which damaged her credit. Through Vanessa’s strength and determination to support her husband, she was able to find a better job that allows her cover her family’s expenses, pay her bills and give him the care he needs. Vanessa’s home has been in need of a new roof for some time now, however, she was unable to obtain affordable financing to make the repairs due to her low credit score.
