Saving for Independent Living: Lynne Fisher, participant of SEDI's Independent Living Accounts program [Video – 3:21] (2009)

Since 1986, Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI) has helped 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 features one award winner, a woman who was abused by her husband, developed substance abuse problems, and ended up at a shelter for women recovering from addictions.

She learned about SEDI’s Independent Living Account (ILA) program and enrolled in it. With the help of matching contributions from SEDI, she saved enough money to be able to move out on her own.

Now she has a job at a food bank, enjoys having her own apartment, and is staying sober.
