Susu is one of the ancient traditional banking systems found mostly in African countries as a means of funds mobilization for commencement, sustenance and in some cases development of small scale enterprises (SSE).
The Deadwood eSusu was inspired by the natural beauty of the Southwest. Trees of the Southwest differ as much as the climate and terrain. Plants that specialize in certain growing conditions like hot deserts and higher elevation cool deserts.
The lack of veteran trees and deadwood in forests is a major cause of biodiversity loss. Reports reveal that a third of forest-dwelling species rely on dead or dying trees, logs, and branches for their survival. The removal of decaying timber and old trees from forests has led to a drastic decline in species such as insects, beetles, fungi, and lichens. Woodpeckers, bats, and squirrels which nest in hollow trees have also lost their natural habitat. Species relying on deadwood for food and/or shelter make up the single biggest group of threatened species.
"It can be shown that every living thing does everything it can not to preserve itself but to become more. To have and to want to have more - growth, in one word - that is life itself." (The Will to Power)
On a final note, The National Bureau of Economic Research did a study and found that “…saving in a group more than triples your chances of saving money”.
