would be a bit of a pisser if you had recently just worked really hard to scrimp and save to pay off your debts
"To be eligible, Croats need to fulfill certain criteria: Their debt must be lower than 35,000 kuna ($5,100), and their monthly income should not be higher than 1,250 kuna ($138). Those applying for the scheme are not allowed to own any property or have any savings."
I think the chances of having been in that situation and scrimped your way out is low.
317,000 is quite significant though, 'thousands' doesn't really do that justice
317,000 is the number of blocked bank accounts in total
They'd be better off giving that money to banks so they can do special bank things with it.
To personally pay off all my debts, and I want an apology for everything, and one of their many houses
The Croatian option gives the chance that someone might, from this single payoff standpoint, get to a position of not needing much further help from the State.
