Johan helps former inmates with debt: "For many, it is shameful to admit that they are struggling with the economy"
When inmates are released from prison, they often struggle with debt. “It makes the road back to society extra difficult,” says Johan Lothe from Wayback.
“As many as 80 per cent of all those who come to us are struggling with debt, either to the private sector or to the public sector. This applies not only to the elderly, but also to the younger ones who have finished their sentence,” says Johan Lothe, general manager of Wayback Oslo, a non-profit foundation that works for the return of convicts to society.
