The client came to use one of our projects and after chatting to our support staff mentioned how she had lived in her current property for the last 6 months without much furniture. She did not have the funds to furnish her home and has been trying to save up since, but due to bills and low income she has yet to be able to buy anymore furniture. This funding would enable her to buy much needed living room furniture and allow her to feel more comfortable in her home.
