United Way of Central Alabama Financial Stability Partnership sponsored a Financial Education Workshops throughout the year to help low income families and individuals achieve financial stability.
Theresa Campbell, Senior Mortgage Loan Officer at Synovus Mortgage Corporation, led the seminar with a host of tips and secrets to maintain a manageable budget and comfortable savings.
The bulk of the workshop participants’ inquiries centered around student loan and credit card debt.“If you’re ever in a position to pay extra on your principle, do it,” said Campbell.
“The Financial Education Workshop is just one of the building blocks in helping families achieve that stability,” said Kimekia Holifield, FSP Coordinator. “Getting there and staying there is key.” Campbell harped on the importance of setting a budget. The key to it all in her experience was when she realized how much money spent daily on eating out, the light bulb went off and she began thinking differently about her money. “Learn how to be smart with your money,” said Campbell. “You have to think smart.”
The workshops feature various topics. The next one is August 16, 2016, and to register visit www.uwca.org/events.
