“We can talk about the debt situation in Canada over and over again, but the only way to enact real change is to offer financial literacy programs,” said Jim Treliving, star of the TV show Dragon’s Den.

Dragon colleague Bruce Croxon and Refresh Financial’s CEO Michael Wendland joined Treliving June 9 at Shopper World Brampton and together they unveiled Refresh FIT, a video series designed to boost the financial IQ of credit-weak Canadians.

In February 2015, I tried to apply for a loan so I could pay off my school debts and my credit card. At least put a dent into my payments. Well, things went all wrong and I was denied for approval of a loan.

Refresh Financial contacted me, concerned as they are to help individuals like myself to have a better future. We went over my finances and decided that the Refresh Financial loan will bring up my credit score to apply for a loan.

I was greatly impressed when every month I saw my credit climbing to the numbers I wanted from the beginning. I was entirely happy for my credit score being higher. My job as well, I made it possible to pay bi-weekly on my payments. With that being said, I learnt to pay my outstanding bills instead of spending money.

I only not have better credit, I have better spending habits and I am happy with the results! ”
