She applied for a debt reduction program not realizing that it would kill her credit score. Not only that she feels lost while making payments to them. George tells her not to focus on the credit score. He asks her why she needs a higher credit score. Heather plans to buy a house and car other future goals and really believes she needs a good credit score for this. She is worried that this will impact her future heavily.
