"Making ends meet is hard, but Opportunity Fund inspired me to try, and I really succeeded!"

Melissa's story

Opportunity Fund gave Melissa the opportunity to achieve financial stability for her and her daughter.

Saving for the Future

Melissa was raised in the foster care system. Today she is a single mom trying to make ends meet and provide a better future for her daughter. Before she opened her savings account with Opportunity Fund, she was financially unstable and didn’t know how to manage her money or save for the future. “I need to save for emergencies, I wouldn’t know where the money would come from if my rent increases, or my car breaks down.”

Opportunity Fund's Start2Save microsavings account is giving Melissa the opportunity to achieve financial stability for her and her daughter. She completed financial education classes, set up a budget, and is saving $40 each month.  After 12 months, Melissa was able to saved $1,200 and feels more confident about her future. “I know that I’m in control, I know exactly what’s coming in and going out, how much exactly I have to pay every month, and how much I can save.”
