Please note we are continuing to accept applications for the fall session.

Apply for Saving Circle. Is there something you or your family need, but it seems like you will never be able to save enough money? This program can support you to improve your financial situation.

How it works?

We will match your $1 with $3. For example, with the minimum deposit of $5 monthly we will match you $15 totally in $20. We will match a maximum of $250, with $750. This equals to a $1000 towards an asset.

  • Must save 4-6 months in a row
    • Min $5 deposit | Max of $65 deposit
