Mother of newborn evicted for late payment
Yvette, the mother of a newborn, was evicted for paying her rent late because she couldn’t work. She’s used payroll cards in the past but doesn’t like the fees. She doesn’t have a bank account and has paid late fees for rent many times.
Her stress comes from managing her finances and trying to avoid penalties and late fees.
After she had her daughter earlier this year, Yvette couldn’t work. On top of that, the leave was unpaid. She got into financial trouble as a result and was evicted from her apartment.
Yvette used PayActiv to put together a deposit for an apartment. She also uses PayActiv for food when she can’t wait for payday. PayActiv helps her manage her finances better.
In Yvette’s Words
“I found an apartment and met the deadline to bring money by Friday. I used PayActiv to pay the deposit for rent to hold the apartment. It also helps me pay the $250 out of every one of my paychecks for childcare.”
