Savers from Mums Mart, Brinnington and the Kenyan Slum Dwellers Federation presented together at a conference on Practical Community Development in Levenshulme which was organised by the Community Development Practice group convened by Macc in Manchester.  Mums Mart shared their story of how they first came together as a group of local women in Benchill and then learned about the savings approach from the South African Alliance in 2015-16. Jack Makau from SDI Kenya was able to share some stories about the Kenyan experience of building a savings-based movement. The workshop was mainly focused on informal question and answer and discussion as participants quizzed the Greater Manchester savers about the ways they have adapted this approach for the UK context.
