Barely making more than minimum wage and having lost her home due to an unexpected family crisis she and her family were forced to live in a rundown hotel. Tonya’s future seemed bleak. However, armed with a burning desire to make life better for her family, help from Purdue Extension’s Making Your Money Work financial literacy program, and a savings plan; Tonya began her journey to become a good steward over the money she did have.

Tonya believes that people with limited or very low incomes often feel they have nothing to save. She knows personally, that nothing is further from the truth. Tonya became an Indy Saver by setting a goal to save $10 a week for an emergency fund.
