Where are Mary and Steve Now?

January 28, 2021 3:30 PM | Michael Guyre (Administrator)

Two years ago, Mary Bouzan and her husband “hit rock bottom.”  They were $50,000 in debt. She and her husband turned to the Centers for Finance & Education for help.  Nine months later, during the NHFCU 77th Annual Meeting, in March, 2019, Mary spoke in front of a crowd of 200 people. They’d already successfully achieved two of their biggest goals:

  • Removing $11,000 of their total debt
  • Moving into their own apartment after relying on family for some time. 
  •  Mary and Steve continued toward their goal of being debt free … “rock-bottom” is no longer!  Where are they today…?

Here’s what they’ve accomplished:

  •  They both purchased new vehicles.  A first time for “new” versus “pre-owned.”
  • They closed on their first home the summer of 2020.
  • They adopted two “furry” children.
  • They have emergency savings.
  • Mary became a Certified Financial Social Work Coach last summer.
  • Mary was just promoted to Head Teller at NHFCU.
  • Their dreams have become reality!

Mary and Steve's "furry children," Sassy & Bindi strike a pose.
Here are Mary and Steve now, enjoying home sweet home.

 Mary - Congrats
 Above-NHFCU's President/CEO, John R. Young congratulates Mary on her Certification.

“Get a financial education and work with someone who will hold you accountable. It’s a life changing event!”
-Mary B.
