Debt Panel helps ease personal debt stigma in UAEThe National’s Debt Panel column succeeds in getting struggling residents to seek help.
UAE residents struggling to meet their financial obligations are now more open to seeking help as a result of The National‘s Debt Panel column, a round-table discussion revealed yesterday.
During the session, The Debt Panel – One Year On, delegates discussed how the stigma surrounding personal indebtedness has eased since the launch of the advice slot 12 months ago.
The National launched the online column last May after being inundated with letters from chronic debtors seeking a solution. Since then the panellists, a line-up of four financial experts, have advised dozens of borrowers on the best way to solve their financial woes.
