Case study: Asma
Asma Haq is a Chemical Engineer turned social worker. She engages and integrates the Asian Muslim community of Marks Gate, East London and runs Marks Gate Relief Project which provides philanthropic services to needy families in and around Marks Gate. She graduated as a Money Mentor in 2021.
‘We became aware of benefits and grant schemes that we never knew existed. Families that I so earnestly supported came down to me asking for their water bills to be halved. Aunty Swaliha had the biggest smile on her face because she was able to shop from Too Good to Go....
'Marks Gate was buzzing! Everybody had a story to tell about how they saved money today. Everybody was saving up to achieve their money goals!’ - Asma
‘I heard about the Money Mentors through a friend…I thought, ‘that’s something that concerns me’, because I had lot of trouble with money, and I was looking for ways how I can be able to manage money.
It’s never been easy for me, for different reasons. However ever since I’ve been coming to attend these sessions, it has really been very good and very useful. They help you to save money, and have a long-term plan and a long-term goal.
The experience that I have gained from here, I will take that with me for life, also share that with friends and family for a very very long time.
I would definitely recommend people to take the same steps that I did.’
- Issiaka, Money Mentors graduate 2022
