Saving for Independent Living: Belinda Swaby, participant of SEDI's Independent Living Accounts program [Video - 2:44] (2010)

Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI) is a Canadian nonprofit organization, founded in 1986, that helps low-income earners gain financial independence through financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and asset building.

SEDI offers a number of annual awards that recognize the success of individuals who have completed its programs. This video introduces one award winner, a young woman who left home at 16 because of family problems and spent the next two years living in group homes.

She explains that SEDI’s program helped her develop money-management skills and, at the same time, learn to control her temper and find more effective ways to deal with difficult situations. Now she works as a receptionist at a wholesale company and enjoys a happy, fulfilling life.
