In 2003, Terry was concerned about costs associated with transitioning her daughter to high school.
“The amount I needed to save may seem insignificant, but it is a lot of money when you are on a tight budget.”
Terry was supported by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and completed MoneyMinded as part of the Saver Plus program. She opened a savings account, saved every month and attended MoneyMinded workshops with other participants to help build her financial skills, knowledge and confidence.
“I felt empowered and excited to have this opportunity to provide for my children…it can be done, because I’ve done it.”
Ten years on and Terry continues to save every month into the same savings account. She recently purchased a new car, something which she never thought she could achieve.
