For many people on low incomes, paying for essential goods and services is a struggle, and the effects of going without can be huge.
Without a fridge you can’t store fresh food, without a computer kids can be left behind at school, and if you can’t afford the pre-apprenticeship course, education can stall before it even begins.
For some time, the Good Shepherd Microfinance No Interest Loan Scheme has offered people on low incomes safe, fair and affordable loans for fridges, washing machines and furniture, as well as education and medical expenses.
This now extends to the dental services provided by participating dentists throughout the Adelaide metropolitan area.
