On the 16th of September the DSRF intern, Rebeca Rus, travelled to Cluj-Napoca to work with Rodica Apan (the Romanian president of the newly created debt counseling project) and the rest of the board.
The trip had many positive results: First of all, a warm welcome to psychologist and university professor Ioana Miclutea, who has decided to join the board! Secondly, the new team decided to change the project’s name from A.R.D. to HelpDebit. Moreover, the Romanian social situation was analyzed and compared to the Danish as well as the French social situation. Lastly, the team also analyzed the behavior of the country’s indebted people: the process they go through, their mental state throughout this process, as well as financial patterns and habits.
