Femia is 88 years old and lives alone in The Hague, in the Netherlands, where 11% of the population is at risk of poverty. Here, the ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold is 976 Euros per month. After her husband died a year ago, Femia had to take her finances into her own hands, and soon the debts piled up. The Praktische Dienstverlening of Stichting Mooi organisation which helps people with financial and administrative problems helped Femia’s get her finances back on track.
