I'm a 44-year-old single mom of 4 grown-up kids. In the Financial Mentoring Programme, my initial goal was to become debt-free, but now I'm focused on growing my money. I've learned the importance of avoiding high-interest loans and am taking steps to improve my financial strategies. This includes encouraging my son to find a part-time job and tracking my expenses closely. I've also gained the confidence to say no when relatives ask for financial help. Many thanks to my mentor, Prasheena Mahtani, for the inspiration!
Lilibeth Araya, Mentee (October 2022 long-term mentoring)
The Enrich Financial Mentoring Programme was life-changing for me. I learned how to manage my finances better and make smarter decisions with my money. One valuable lesson was the 50% needs, 30% wants, and 20% savings allocation, which helps me cover expenses, prioritise desires, and save for the future. Setting financial goals and consistently saving each month has boosted my confidence and helped me achieve financial control. I highly recommend the Enrich programme and Mr. Haffiz, my mentor, to anyone seeking financial empowerment.
Atik Supriyati, Mentee (December 2022 long-term mentoring)
I participated in the 2022 Financial Mentoring Programme, which emphasised the importance of financial discipline. Now, I confidently prioritise my goals and maintain discipline to achieve them. I've set long-term financial growth as my goal and diligently track my expenses using a budget. Distinguishing between "needs" and "wants" helps me avoid unnecessary spending. “The Enrich program has been a great help for those of us struggling with finances. Discipline is the key!"
Rowena Astrera, Mentee (October 2022 long-term mentoring)
Thank you so much [my mentor], for all the sacrifices, effort and patience with me throughout our mentoring. I am so grateful that I met you along the way of my journey. I found not just a MENTOR but a FRIEND as well. Now, I am confident and faithful to going back home FOR GOOD! Thank you isn’t enough, but rest assured that I will spread and plant more seeds to others, to inspire them as well and live with a purpose!

I would like to thank [my mentee] for her incredible dedication to her future and her goals, she taught me a lot with her resilience and determination. I’d also like to thank Enrich for this opportunity and platform they have built to help domestic helpers and allow others to gain more perspective, insights and empathy.
