She is currently taking our Qualitas course offered in South Bronx. She is half-way through her 12-week program and she states that what she has learned have already helped her make significant changes in the way she manages her finances and in her everyday life.
She shares her Qualitas experience with us: “When I first arrived to New York I was working hard and was very careful about saving money. I managed to save quite a bit of money but, for some reason, in the past I have been spending all the time, buying things I felt I needed and have made a significant dent in my savings. This has left me feeling sad and defeated. It has also brought me a lot of problems with my husband as we would very often argue about our finances and he would complain about how much I had been spending. I realized that I was creating a vicious cycle: over-spending, feeling bad about it and defeated, and going out to spend again. I felt hopeless.” “When I found out about the Qualitas financial education course offered at my community center, I knew I had to take it. It has helped me tremendously. It has only been six classes, but I have regained my hope and have made important changes in my financial habits. For example, I now plan my weekly expenses and identify what truly are my family’s needs. Then I take pride in finding the best I can get for my money and have managed to have a surplus by the end of the week. My husband sees me doing my homework and is very proud of me. I can feel how he is less concerned about my spending and I am regaining his trust. The money I have left over from the week I put straight into my savings account. My financial goal is to reach the savings amount I had a few years ago, and go beyond. What I like most about Qualitas is that I have learned to say: Yes I can!
