A “sou-sou” is a traditional micro-savings and finance plan widely utilized in Africa and the Caribbean.

The Dance & Performance Institute has "thrown" five rounds of its eSUSU program, benefiting 100 dance artists. By participating in the susu, you can fund an upcoming project. You can pay a bill off. Pay your rent. Or you can save. Here's how the susu works:

  • Each week, each member contributes a set amount of money to the susu. 

  • Weekly contributions are pooled and distributed to 1 member. This is known as a “hand”.

  • The susu continues until all members have received a “hand”.

  • The eSUSU program is open to current and former Institute participants only.
