Meet Jack

Our first story

Meet Jack.

Jack had been the assistant manager of a hotel for five years before he was made redundant in 2013.

It wasn’t long before his usual monthly outgoings and expenses began to fall out of line with his change in income. When we find ourselves in a tight financial situation that we are not accustomed to, it can be difficult to get used to the limits of our new budget.

Jack already had existing credit commitments to both payday and mainstream lenders. He was left with a total repayment cost of £500 per month, spread across six different loan providers.

Managing these repayments became a challenge in itself and, having missed a couple of repayment deadlines by a few days, he began to incur additional late fees. His credit score suffered as a result.

Despite finding a new job in the restaurant of another hotel, Jack’s usual personal loan providers refused his applications to cover the cost of existing debt on account of his bad credit.

That’s when Jack approached Evolution Money.

He needed to know the best way to regain control of his finances and lower his total monthly repayment cost.

Having applied online, one of our expert loan advisors listened to Jack’s story on the phone, took into account all aspects of his situation not just his credit score before talking him through our most suitable debt consolidation loan options available to him.

Together we were able to work out Jack’s ideal repayment plan. As a homeowner, we were able to offer him a £5,000 secured loan to consolidate his existing loans into one single monthly payment of £300.
This not only brought his monthly cost of repayment significantly down, it made the process of repaying far less stressful and far easier to manage.
