Hasan Ahmed commented on My Two Immigrant Grandmothers

You may find Eduardo Gonzalez 's article quite helpful. Even the stats point towards a need for a rethink in financial consultancy being offered by banks and other institutions.

Great interview Sara. I recently spoke to a food cart owner in Brooklyn and he seemed to have the same fears as well. While he was not harmed by the 2008 credit crunch, he has become apprehensive about making any investments in the USA and prefers sending money back home instead.

Hasan Ahmed commented on Interview with a Start-Up Co-founder

Yes, I think people in his age bracket are aiming for early retirement. Therefore I think it is something that banks and other financial institutions should take into consideration and start recommending current users ways of planning for their post-retirement life while they are still in their 30's. Rather than leaving it for later on.
