A single mother of two, Marianne Dolls knew she wanted more for her children, but she wasn’t sure where to start. With help from Southern Bancorp Community Partners credit counselors and lenders, Marianne was able to rebuild her credit, learn the importance of saving even a small amount, and build a stronger future for her and her kids by purchasing a home. Her hard work will also have a generational impact by teaching her kids the importance of credit, savings and financial education. Every year, through our array of programs, products and services, Southern helps guide hundreds of people like Marianne on the path to a stronger financial future.
