  1. 1. BUILDING ASSETS TOGETHER The case of Savings Group Bank Linkage Project - YouTube
  2. 2. Introduction of Saving Groups: This is a group managed micro finance in which group members mobilize savings and access credit from personal savings. •Targets those at the bottom of the pyramid who cannot easily access financial services from formal financial institutions. •People mobilize own savings and access credit from personal savings. •There is ‘NO’ interjection of funds from outside. In Kenya 78% of the beneficiaries are women. But, we are seeing people dropping from formal financial institutions and especially MFIs to join savings groups as we also see savings group members graduate to formal financial institution, but still deeply rooted in the groups.
  3. 3. • Any country’s wealth lies primarily in her people. • In developing countries the majority of a country’s people are at the bottom of the pyramid; home to illiteracy, poverty, diseases, lack of information and of course hit more by effect of climate change.

  5. 5. Asset building Money is one form of power, but what is powerful is the understanding on how to use/ manage/ invest that money. Money comes and goes, but you have the education about how money works, you gain power over it and can begin building assets. • By enabling individuals to engage in businesses, access information, and finances, Savings groups UNLEASES people’s potential. • Savings group enables members/People to direct their own steps in development and therefore can direct steps in the nations development. The long journey to asset building starts with savings group.
