Workers who are 50 and older are encouraged to save enough for their retirement age so as to have enough savings at their old age. This can be done by adding voluntary contribution to their pension on monthly basis. They can now invest whatever they have apart from the above in stock,real estate or investment of their choice. Learning vocation or trade is another way of creating multiple source of income.

This will definitely create another product(s)/Service(s) to credit union/pension house as people below 50 can plan their retirement, traveling and the cost of setting up their business after 50. 

This project is to be implemented in collaboration with relevant agency in United State of America in collaboration with credit union.

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Any worker that spend everything without savings or investment will definitely have his or herself to blame while those that save for future will live a better life that encourage others. Credit union may see this as an avenue to create new products targeting people of 50 and older in preparation for their: start up cost, retirement plan and travelling cost of sourcing for technical assistance.
