Alya works full time for a local college police department. Her car began to give her trouble and the repairs were more than the car was worth. Alya had to find a more reliable used car. Alya's income allows her to cover expenses, but not save for the unexpected. While Alya could pay her car payment each month, paying the down payment for the car would mean she would be short for May's rent. Rooftop was able to make up the difference for Alya.
