Joining a Tanda to Stay Afloat

One Man's Story

Angel Luna was in trouble.

He owed $13,000 after a car accident, owed $20,000 to a vocational school he dropped out of, and had debt on multiple credit cards.

He was scrambling to make up the money- collecting cans, working three or four jobs, and borrowing money from friends and relatives- but he wasn't making much progress.
