'Ways to Work' helps credit-challenged own their own vehicles
MILWAUKEE - For many a car is a luxury. Getting to work means public transportation. But one local program at the YWCA is helping people get their own vehicles. It's called "Ways to Work."
It helps people with less than stellar credit get car loans. Program Manager Shelby Borchardt explains, "Ways to work is an economic empowerment program. It combines low interest auto loans with financial education and budget consulting. It's for credit challenged individuals who are working."
Borchardt says it's rewarding to get people out of the cycle of poverty.
