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.

DETAILS:

Participants attend money management training which gives them tools for saving money.  Over a period of 4-6 months their savings are 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.

Eligibility: Residents of the Inkster community living on a low income.  To qualify, you will need to fill out an application form and provide the income of all household members (as reported when filing your taxes).

Time and Location: Money Management Sessions are offered multiple times each year at various locations in the Inkster community.
