Debt for Debts sake

Doing my surgery this week I was told the tale of a constituent who, having got into financial trouble with their rent because of a problem with benefits is now having to take daily crisis loans whilst the benefits are sorted, a process that will apparently take some weeks. So, having got onto debt, they have to go into more debt whilst the problem gets fixed. Something is not right there.
