Asmeret was a Latch tenant between 2009 and 2013. Thanks to support from Latch, she was able to move on and build a new independent life for herself and her family.
Originally from Eritrea, she had previously been living with her family in unsuitable accommodation that saw nine people, including a very young baby, crammed into one room for over four months.
Latch helped by providing a house for the family and support with clothing, bedding and everything else they needed. We also supported Asmeret with her college studies and a course in health and social care. When she was ready to move on to independent living, Latch offered to help with equipping the new property and support to stay in the tenancy rent-free whilst she decorated the new house.
Since moving on to independent living, she has managed to mortgage her property and is progressing towards owning her own home. She is working for the NHS and all her children are either studying or have completed their University studies.
