Nadia signed up for a Rainy Savings Account through New Ventures Maine because she was looking for ways to become more self-reliant.

As a single mom just starting college, she knew she would need to have some emergency savings set aside to help with unexpected expenses. “After completing the Rainy Days Savings Program, something unpredictable happened… my only vehicle broke down. My savings, which were matched dollar for dollar through the program, allowed me to fix my vehicle and overcome what could have been a major setback for me.” Nadia has now graduated, is working full time, and saving money to buy a home.

The money that Nadia had saved through the Rainy Day Savings Program made a big difference when her car broke down. Find out how you can join the Rainy Day Savings Program and other Matched Savings Programs through New Ventures Maine.
