Single mum Mary (not her real name) who had been unable to purchase her fridge, washing machine and TV (via credit or savings), had opted to rent all three. SHAC was able to approve a NILS for a new fridge, Mary sent the rented one back, and was able to repay the loan for less than the usual monthly rental fee. Mary intends to replace all of her rented items through the NILS Scheme. She spoke of how good she felt purchasing a new fridge that would be hers to keep. Having a plan around her finances also gave her a sense of control over her life.
