Antonia is from Pomona, CA and in October 2008 she owed $13,325 to 7 different unsecured creditors. Her average interest rate was 27%. Her monthly minimum payments were $515. Her FICO? score was 482.

A debt management plan was set up for her with a consolidated monthly payment of $417, at an average interest rate of 24 %. Her plan will take 5 years to pay off. After just over a year on the plan, her FICO score? rose to 566.

The concessions granted by Antonia?s creditors lowered her monthly payment by almost $100, and dropped her average interest rate by from 27% to 24%. Plus she?ll repay her entire debt of $13,325 in five years. Also, her credit score rose 84 points after 13 months of making regular DMP payments.
