Success Story of the Week – The Tufaga’s
“I’m David Tufaga and this is our story. Cherish and I have been married for 12 years and have four handsome boys that mean the world to us.
Like most other families, we struggled with financial hardships. We went from working job to job two years ago, to getting unemployed for six months. We didn’t know how we were going to pay rent and all our bills.
We were the family that would say “hey as long as we pay our bills late, at least it’s being paid”, but at the same time we didn’t know how it messed up our CREDIT.
We also accumulated a whole bunch of debt at the same time. We had a couple of repossessed vehicles, back taxes, and also loans and credit card debt that all went into collection.
We pushed through and got through the storm. As parents we never gave up and always kept our FAITH and hoped things would get better.
We heard about 101 Financial and all the good things they have to offer, but my wife was always skeptical. We also thought we couldn’t do it being a one income family. We were wrong!
The 99 Program taught us to budget, save money (something we thought we could never do because we lived paycheck to paycheck), and manage our debt.
We joined the program October 29, 2015 and we paid off all our debt in February 2016 right before we joined the 101 Financial System. Now we are working on our credit through the smart banking that the 101 Financial System opened our eyes to.
Our biggest dream is to buy a home for our family. If we stick to the financial plan our instructors have given us our dream is within reach. We are truly BLESSED to be a part of this program!”
