The number represents an increase of 200 thousand people in relation to the previous month – lower, however, than the average growth of 400 thousand registered in previous months.
The banking and cards segment is responsible for most debts, 27.8% of the total. Then come basic bills such as water, electricity and gas, with 22.6%. Next are the financial and retail sectors, with 13.2% and 12.5%, respectively. Services (10.5%), Telephony (7%) and Securitization Companies (2.2%) complete the ranking of debts by sector.
The default scenario usually leads debtors to a snowball, in which one debt pulls another and leads them to have their “dirty names” – which means having the Cadastro de Pessoas Físicas (CPF) registered in a database restrictions on credit, such as Serasa and SPC.
With the CPF negative, the person has difficulty getting credit, and with that, he may not be able to buy a product on term, make a mortgage or even get a credit card.
One of the ways to clear your name is debt repayment for debt settlement. The consumer can directly look for the establishments that are in debt to make the negotiation. Another way is to use services such as Serasa Limpa Nome, which offer options to pay off your debts with special discounts.
