Verlin had three savings goals: one for her family farm, one for her daughter currently enrolled in college education, and the other for her four year old’s college. She enrolled with Asset Builders for Individual Development Account (IDA) savings in May 2005 to save for the first two goals. The Saving for Entrepreneurship, Education, and Downpayment (SEED) program afforded her the opportunity to reach her third goal.In January 2006, she bought seed for her family farm. Her next goal of paying for her daughter’s current tuition and fees for the semester was reached in February 2006. Verlin and William are working hard toward saving in SEED for college.
