My name is Nuno Matos, I'm a regular guy, 36 years old with a three year old kid and another one new born. My life companion is unemployed, which allows us to give a more family support to the kids and i work as a analyst developer for a outsourcing company. Although I'm the only one working and sustaining the family, we pay all our bills on time and do not own any credit card debt. We also can manage well our money for groceries and almost every little thing we need each month. I've started my adult life from scratch without any money and a big debt that fortunately I've already paid out.
Since we moved together, we've rented houses for 6 years, and we decided to stop renting and purchase one (at the end, it was the best for us in terms of money and family) almost five years ago in 2015.
At the time, it was already difficult to find cheap and good houses, and beside it's not what we really dreamed, it was the best we could find and what was in the possibilities of our terms (due to what both earned as wage at the time, we bought the best we could with the max the banks borrowed us). It is an apartment on the third floor with three bed rooms, two beds, 1291,67 square foot for 130000€ (the taxes for the mortgage were awful, but considering the prices in the same zone for the same type was around 180k it was not bad).
I have a goal in life and that is to pay off my mortgage, the last of my debts, and achieve the "Financial Freedom". I know it may look like a selfish goal, but having no other problems, this is the one who has more weight in our lifes and without it we could save the Money for another projects and enjoy a better life as a family.
If you have an extra buck in your wallet, please donate, you can make a family reach a life goal or reduce the debt and help us be more close to the so called financial Freedom and who knows if we can help you reach yours too.
