Debt Relief in Action: Virgin Islands
Finding debt relief in spite of limited income.
Residents in the U.S. Virgin Islands have no shortage of challenges when it comes to debt. Unemployment rates are high and even for those who have a job, median earnings and household income levels are significantly lower than in the continental United States. For women, median earnings are even lower. Yet residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands still face the same problems with debt that other U.S. citizens face, so as a result nearly one in three families is living in poverty.
