Dan’s Story

My name is Dan and I am a middle aged man and I live in Colwood BC and am self-employed and run a small cleaning business (sole proprietorship); I have always worked hard to pay my bills and debts on time when I could. For many years my Debts and Credit Score were constantly climbing up and down though from the major income ups and downs that most people experience who are self-employed. I had been using my credit cards a lot for emergencies and when times were lean and I did not have enough money to pay the bills or buy supplies…

Donna & Ben’s Story

Michael’s Story

After over ten years of struggling to support my wife and three young children, I found myself in over $100,000 of debt to various collection agencies and lenders. I was continually keeping up with seemingly never ending payments and collections but not getting out of debt- just getting further behind!

I wanted to pay my debts off but the task seemed more and more insurmountable. I felt exhausted and the financial strain was weighing on my health and family relationships…

Debt Help for Seniors

At the age of 70 I was forced to retire due to the health issues of [my] spouse. We were not yet behind [on our payments], but it was getting harder to make ends meet.

On the advice of family and friends I came to 4 Pillars [Consulting Victoria]; the treatment I received was both compassionate and professional. All staff including Benjy and Tasha were so helpful that I did not feel degraded by what was happening to us. I would recommend 4 Pillars in a heart beat to anyone going through a hard time financially!
