Do you have some savings, even a modest amount? How about putting a small part of your money into Shared Interest, a bank which lends small amounts to Fairtrade producers? Your money will pay a frankly low level of interest, but you can get it back if you need to. Shared Interest have £3M to lend but have requests amounting to £10M….so they keep having to say ‘No’ to people to whom they would have wanted to lend money. I myself have had a few hundred on deposit with them for about 15 years and when I needed to withdraw it when I was buying a house it was no problem. I opened a Shared Interest account for each of my grandchildren when they were born to demonstrate to them that money is not for personal hoarding but for us to be stewards of it.
