National nonprofit credit counseling agency helps thousands become debt-free for life
Raleigh, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2011 -- CESI Debt Solutions, a national nonprofit credit counseling agency, announced today that 6,636 consumers nationwide graduated from its debt management program in 2010. To graduate, clients pay back 100% of their credit card debts to issuers. This number is a 7% increase from 2009.
Consumers enter CESI Debt Solutions’ debt management program to regain control of their finances by paying off credit card debt in a timely manner and in many cases avoiding penalties and lowering interest rates. Clients work with counselors to set up customized payment plans and working budgets, check-in regularly with their counselors maintain those budgets, and take courses on money management and budgeting. After entering the program, clients usually pay off their credit cards much faster than if they were to do it on their own. The length a client stays on the program depends on their total debt and income.
“I had over $25,000 in credit card debt when I started the program four years ago. I graduated in November and the freedom I feel is truly indescribable. I would not have been able to do this myself, so I am so thankful to CESI for helping me become debt-free and set me on the path to stay this way for life,” says Kathy Bender, a Maryland resident and 2010 graduate of the CESI Debt Solutions debt management program.
“Helping consumers become debt-free and better, wiser consumers is the primary goal that we at CESI Debt Solutions work towards every day,” says Dr. Diane Chen, founder and CEO of CESI Debt Solutions. “Knowing that thousands of consumers have turned to us for financial freedom and then stuck with the program to pay off their credit card debt in full is deeply rewarding. On behalf of all of our employees, we are very proud of our clients’ accomplishments.”
CESI Debt Solutions has been recognized as one of the most dependable debt management companies in the US, according to Goldline Research and has an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
