A Senior on the Move!
A senior citizen and an original native of South Carolina, Carey has lived as a residence of Macon, Ga for the past 40 years. She’s a caring, friendly, faith-filled woman. In past years, she made a living as a bus driver, taking children to and from school. Carey eventually retired, with only retirement income and widow compensation. Carey faced the challenges of limited income, a low credit score, and no transportation – despite all the years she’d spent driving others. She’d donated 3 of her past vehicles to charity, so was thus left in need of a vehicle herself. While living on a restricted budget, Carey thought that if she could only learn how to manage her income, then just maybe her prayers would be answered. She could finally stop having to lift a ride on the church van each Sunday for church if she could only afford to purchase her own vehicle.
