    Congratulations on setting up your charity.






    An Idea.

    How about setting up a course for or 'ready to go package', for creating Credit Unions.

    Would help people who have the least, to save and get loans without going to the loan sharks. Thus getting into even further debt.

    Bet Tax Tony could help with this.

    That's such a wonderful thing to do and to have your dad on board as part of it all is fantastic.

    Martin, you're truly one in a million. Well done and wishing you all the best.

    Martin

    I really applaud this initiative. Debt and lack of financial literacy is a huge problem. Well done for taking this on.
