Money Goals

Money Goals: Decorator

Oct 15, 2020

Occupation: I have studied and passed my Level 1 City and Guilds Painting and Decorating now onto a Level 2 and I am also studying tiling

Industry: Painter and decorator and tiling

Age: 29

Location: Burnley

What is your money goal?

I am training to be a painter and decorator so would like to have my own business.

Why is that important to you?

I would like to be able to provide for my family and buy a home as we are facing losing our home because the landlord is selling our home.

How much progress have you made so far?

I’ve only been with Loqbox for 3 months so have only saved up a small amount. But for every payment with Loqbox I also put into my savings.

What challenges are you experiencing in reaching your goal? (Be honest)?

There are always bills to be paid and money waiting to go out. Covid has given us extra gas and electric bills.

How would it feel to reach your goal?

Reaching my goal would be amazing. I will finally be able to get a better credit rating and do things like get a car and open my own business and buy a home. Buying a home would make us feel safe and more stable.

How has your attitude to money changed since working on your goal?

I am starting to see putting money aside is very important for the future and things we have planned for bettering our future.
