Description

Members of "Savings Groups" pool savings in a communal pot and loan their growing fund to each other for their short-term needs. One Nepali group in New York City collects and distributes $70,000 every month. This presentation will discuss savings circles in the Cambodian, Kenyan, Bangladeshi, Barbadian, Nepali and Eritrean communities, and include members of the Latino community in Lawrence as panelists.
