A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEBT
Every day millions of people find themselves in desperate need of cash because traditional banks have turned them down for a loan. In this new BBC One documentary series we tell the amazing stories of people whose lives have been transformed by an ethical loan. Embedded with a number of credit unions and responsible lenders we document their journey from concept to creation as a business dream becomes a reality.
For others they just need a helping hand when the bills are bigger than their income. For many these community based schemes offer a safe alternative to extortionate pay-day money lenders and loan sharks.
With cautionary stories from people who have been in debt and got back in the black, and jam packed with take home advice about how best to stay out of the red, A Matter of Life and Debt is an inspiring look at how we can tackle debt in the UK.
