Financial literacy education equips individuals, particularly women, with essential skills and confidence to manage their finances, foresee future needs, and access credit for starting small businesses. Yet, global data, including insights from the S&P Global Financial Literacy Survey, indicate that financial literacy levels remain low worldwide. Notably, African women exhibit lower financial literacy rates compared to men, making them and the younger demographic key targets for educational efforts. Regrettably, financial literacy rarely features prominently in school curriculums, highlighting a significant educational gap that needs urgent addressing.

Program Focus

Bitfiasi Initiative’s Financial Literacy Program is designed to enhance financial literacy and empower women to effectively manage and grow their finances. The program centers on fundamental money management principles, encouraging participants to: Earn more, save diligently, invest wisely, spend prudently, borrow responsibly, and give generously.

This program equips individuals, particularly those without prior financial knowledge, to achieve financial independence from the ground up while also encouraging those who are financially aware to exceed their existing financial goals.
