My loan officer Kascha walked me through the process and kept me informed every step of the way. I was applying for a loan and Kascha saw they could provide a lower interest rate with a Debt Consolidation Loan - saving me almost $400 a month! Kascha was great! She went above and beyond what I ever experienced with a loan officer! Thank you!

I am writing in regard to this three staff members Nazom K. Fudzie, Carlos Villarraga, and Delta Payne. That have went beyond the call of duty to assist me in my finance and my credit report. Delta assistance me with letter to my creditor and items was removed from my credit report. I start being available to get credit again. I was so excited.

I am pleased to state, I have accomplished my financial goals that entailed credit rebuilding and debt management on the guidance by Mrs. Delta M. Payne. Mrs. Payne, provided me a plan and resources to assist in meeting my financial goals of improving my credit report and scores. As it stands my Equifax credit score is 679 and has increased over 150 points since working with Mrs. Payne.

Mrs. Payne is an amazing financial counselor. I personally recommend her services to any wanting to increase their credit score. I was provided a plan and resources to reach my goal of credit repair, rebuilding, and reached all goals.  I increased my credit scores by 210 points.

The financial freedom teams at Democracy FCU assisted me in meeting my financial goals of improving my credit report and scores so that I was approved for a signature loan order to consolidate my debts and cause great savings.
