Your Story

My story isn't a warm and fuzzy one. Instead, it's a real one. I purchased my vehicle at the same time as I purchased one for my wife. Less than a year after those purchases I went through some severe medical troubles a long and hard divorce where my financial standing went from very well off to just making it by. I put most of the money down towards my ex-wife's vehicle and hardly any down towards mine so when the dust settled I couldn't even trade my car in for one with cheaper payments because I owed more than the car was worth. My medical and lawyer bills left me in a tough position. Westerra worked with me to refinance my Auto loan. While I would end up oweing more in the long run they helped me to lower my monthly payment so I could begin to rebuild my finances. This is not an ideal situation by any means, but at the end of the day Westerra helped me to feel more comfortable about my situation and to move forward. Now I am in a position where I can pay more towards my monthly car payment each month.

How Westerra Works for You

I value the fact that when I was in a tough spot, Westerra offered me reasonable options to help me move forward instead of creating more stress in an already stressful situation.
