Frances Creek started a Student Education Trust for her daughter, Antoinette, when she started high school.

Frances was on CDEP wages but still found it possible to contribute to Antoinette’s trust fund each fortnight.

“SETs was good and it wasn’t too much. I managed even though I was on CDEP.”

Frances was able to use the money she had put aside to purchase school supplies for Antoinette, including a laptop. Frances is happy with the support she receives from MPower consultants at the Coen Opportunity Hub.

“It was really good; it helped us a lot.”

“When my daughter needed things for high school, she had money to get them.”

Antoinette is glad she has funds available to buy educational items when she needs them:

“My SET account has really helped me.”

Antoinette wants her sister, Offiliah, to benefit from SETs the way she did.

“I’m finishing school this year and I want her to have the same opportunities I did.”
