Mobile financial counseling arrives in Michiana


Fifth-Third's E-Bus, which provides financial counseling and advice for free, made a stop in South Bend at the Kroc Center, Friday.  They were giving one-on-one personalized counseling, including advice about savings and budgeting, home buying and borrowing, understanding credit, and protecting families from identity theft.

Fifth-Third Community and Economic Development Relationship Manager, Penny Thompson says if they can help one person walk off the bus with a better financial understanding, they will have achieved their goal.  "Be it finding a home, be it understanding their credit, building it, walking off with a plan to improve their credit," Thompson said, "so that they can buy a home or car is our ultimate goal."

They are also providing free log-on information for their job searching web program called Next Job.  This is designed to help people seeking help with resumes, cover letters, interviews, networking and other related topics.

The Bus will be in Goshen on Saturday at LaCasa from 9am until 3pm.
