Cast Members Shine in ‘Opportunity Knock$’: a Series on Financial Solutions

Season 2 of ‘Opportunity Knock$’ Showcases BECU’s Impact on Financial Freedom for Struggling Families

Are you struggling to make ends meet financially? Do you feel like you’re drowning in debt with no way out? If so, you’re not alone. Many Americans are facing similar challenges, but there is hope. In season 2 of the public television series ‘Opportunity Knock$,’ BECU steps in to offer a struggling family empathy, hope, and a path to financial freedom.

‘Opportunity Knock$’ is not your typical reality show. It is underwritten by the National Council for Financial Opportunities, a nonprofit organization dedicated to poverty reduction and wealth building in underrepresented populations. The show focuses on helping the 40% of Americans who live on survival budgets, providing guidance and support through financial challenges.

In season 2, viewers meet Lynette and Omar, a married couple struggling to make payments on multiple payday loans. BECU representatives work with the couple to consolidate their loans into one personal loan with a better interest rate, saving them over $1,650 per month. Additionally, Lynette and Omar receive financial coaching from Stacey Black, BECU’s lead financial educator, who helps them take steps towards their dream of homeownership.

The impact of BECU’s involvement in ‘Opportunity Knock$’ goes beyond just one family. It showcases the credit union’s commitment to improving members’ financial well-being and removing the stigma associated with living in debt and asking for help. By providing solutions, education, and support, BECU empowers individuals to take control of their financial journey and build better lives.
