With Vinnies’ help Caroline could afford a new fridge for her family.
When Caroline’s fridge had broken down, she could no longer keep food fresh and had resorted to buying pre-prepared and take-away meals for her family, which was both nutritionally and financially unsustainable while living on a parenting payment.
Due to financial constraints, applying for a loan through traditional methods was not an option for her. This is when she decided to contact Vinnies. Her local Vinnies team informed her about our No Interest Loans Scheme (NILS).
Our NILS program enabled Caroline to purchase a new fridge, with repayments that were affordable for her circumstances. Caroline now enjoys cooking again and the children are benefitting from a more balanced diet.
