The indebtedness of Brazilian families reached the highest level since 2010, according to the CNC (National Confederation of Commerce in Goods, Services and Tourism): 79% of households owe retail stores, banks or credit cards. Three out of each of the families are overdue for an account, and 10% of these are unable to pay the debts.

The topic ended up in the electoral campaign, with former president Lula (PT) promising to create a fund with public money to renegotiate debts and former governor Ciro Gomes (PDT) proposing a refinancing carried out by the government with lower interest rates and longer terms. , as well as a bill that would prohibit banks from charging more than double the original debt amount.
