Can't find the answer to. . . . Posted on 07-14-2011

Robert A. Kearse
Las Vegas, NV
I need your help:

I heard of a cooperative practice used by blacks (Jamaicans?) in England to assist group members
in amassing enough capital for a down payment on a home.

Each group member would contribute a set amount monthly to a group pool, and when a sufficient
amount for a home down payment was accumulated the designated member would use the amount
for the stated objective. Then the cycle would continue.

I seem to remember that the word for this process was something like (sooshe??).

But I have not been able to find anything in the dictionary that defines this practice.

Can anyone identify the exact appropriate word and spelling??

Thanks for your help>

Robert
