The International Women’s Resource Network (IWRN), is appealing to landlords to engage in dialogue with their tenants in reaching workable and amicable agreements to treat with outstanding rent payments.
IWRN President, Adriana Sandrine Rattan, said this comes on the heels of heightened calls from clients some of whom are owing outstanding rent due to challenges brought on by the pandemic.
In a release, she said the organization notes that at least forty percent (40%) of its clientele represents single female heads of households with at least two or more children under age 16, victims and survivors of intimate-partner violence, and others who are unemployed or already surviving on one type of government grant or the other.
The IWRN also welcomed the announcement by Finance Minister Colm Imbert regarding the provision of relief for individuals who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic; however it notes that many are experiencing serious challenges in effectively managing their limited financial resources which is contributing to further fall outs in their survival.
The organization said it is fully cognizant of the financial turmoil being experienced by many families and are asking WOMEN in particular who are seeking assistance in managing their income and expenditure to connect with their team via the FaceBook page or whatsapp 795-9531. A financial consultant would arrange personal consultations.
