StepUP helped me out of a bad financial situation and to begin a new life with my family. - Reza
Reza emigrated from Iran in September 2012 with his wife and six-year old son. Reza was hoping to find work and a happier life for his family. For three months, his search for work was unsuccessful, despite his fluent English.
Then Reza applied to work as a Farsi interpreter. He passed his exams with flying colours, however his jobs were in distant suburbs and appointments were often at short notice. He needed a car.
A friend told him about StepUP. Reza hesitated because he had a negative credit rating from overdue insurance fees. As part of his StepUP application, Good Money staff spoke with the insurance company. They managed to clear Reza’s credit history. Reza’s loan was approved for a car. Now he believes every new migrant needs to know about StepUP because “it helped me out of a really bad financial situation. I can now begin a new life for my family”.
