I am very appreciative of this service, which has enabled my family to progress towards achieving an outcome, that would have been totally impossible without Rural West’s guidance, motivation and tact. We still have a bit to accomplish, but feel our goal is now achievable with your assistance.

Rural West helped both financially and emotionally at a time when we had no idea where to start. They helped find the light at the end of the tunnel. We managed to pay back all our debts without declaring bankruptcy which meant a lot to us. They assisted us in negotiating with our creditors and getting plans in place. We can not thank them enough.

Rural West was a big help in getting me through the tough times by helping with financial options, practical budgeting and just being someone to talk to who took an interest in what we were about. I am now operating a thriving business that could have landed on the scrap heap!
