Case Study: Emma

Emma smashed her financial goals and got debt-free faster using Wisr's Booster Payments. By paying just $50 extra a month on her loan, she saved over $1,000 in interest*. Way to go Emma!

Since consolidating my debts with Wisr, my relationship with money has changed so much for the better. I’ve even been able to put extra towards paying off my loan sooner, meaning I’ll pay less in interest.

Before my loan with Wisr, money was always on my mind. And not in a good way. I had a personal loan and high-interest credit card debt, and I was always anxious about repayment deadlines. Having multiple repayment dates with different interest rates made it especially difficult to keep track of. I just felt like there was no chance to breathe, living paycheck-to-paycheck and having no emergency fund.

Consolidating my debts with Wisr has honestly changed my life! Having one repayment with such a reasonable interest rate has really taken a lot of the stress off. Not to mention, I even have extra money left over each month! This is so key because I’ve been able to throw extra towards my debt, which is saving me lots of interest and taking time off of my loan.

"Putting spare change towards paying off my Wisr loan helped me save over $1,000 over the life of my loan"


With Wisr, I’ve been able to make much smarter decisions. I didn’t know how easy it is to make these extra booster payments, and by paying just an extra $50 a month could save me over $1000 over the life of my loan. But now that I’m able to implement these, there’s definitely more breathing room for other things. I can focus on building up an emergency fund, treating myself to a nice meal every once in a while and I finally have the headspace to imagine a better future for myself.

Financial wellness is a lifelong journey, and Wisr has helped me immensely to really kick start mine. No matter how small, each step is a step closer to being debt-free!
