Would you like to improve your financial situation? Is there something you or your family need, but feel like you will never be able to save enough money?
Saving Circle could be the solution for you.
Saving Circle is a saving program developed at SEED Winnipeg and funded through United Way. In the program, participants are required to take a 10 week Money Management Training Course and open a Matched Savings Account at Assiniboine Credit Union.
Participants who are Inkster community members living on a low income and save for 4-6 months to be matched $3 for every $1 saved (up to $1,000 of combined personal and matched savings). Participants’ savings are then put towards an asset that will help improve the quality of life for them and their family.
To qualify, you need to include the income of all household members when filing your taxes. Please call Brenna at 204-782-8793 for more information and to request an application form!
