The Guarantee Foundation is a non-profit social welfare organization that helps prevent and solve financial and debt problems in Finnish households. We operate nationwide and our services are free of charge.
- advice by phone and chat
- guarantees for consolidation loans provided by banks

In addition, we try to influence legislation and other structures so that they would support people’s efforts to manage their own finances and help them avoid severe debt problems.
