Saving for Independent Living - Sean Bulloch's inspirational story [Video – 4:28] (2012)

Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI) is a Canadian nonprofit organization that helps people gain financial independence through financial literacy, asset building, and entrepreneurship.

This video features a man who describes how he used to spend money to feel better about himself, eventually running up large debts on his credit cards. He also began abusing drugs and alcohol, spent some time in jail, and ended up at a treatment centre.

He learned about SEDI’s Independent Living Account (ILA) program and enrolled in it. With the help of matching contributions from SEDI, he saved enough money to be able to move out on his own and go back to school.

Now he has a fulltime job, helps to maintain the house where he lives, and contributes financially to his family.
