Financial Coaching Program Success

  • "I am looking forward to the future. I can live better after learning this. I never planned or budgeted before. Back home there is no credit you just go with the flow and you don’t run out of money. I never budgeted until now. When I came to Canada I did the same thing [as before], but now I need to start to learn how to live in Canada."
