“Without financial literacy, divorce rates soar, families rupture, and women stay with abusive men for financial security. A lack of jobs contributes to riots and illegal activity. Name any situation and it goes back to money. We need to focus on poverty eradication.”
In view of this, IEF, in partnership with Real Microcredit has created an initiative called Young People in Finance (YPF) to improve financial literacy and money management among young people, and it is hoped that it will ultimately become a key part of the national curriculum. Because without it, generations of people will most likely continue to live unfulfilling lives as slaves to money.
We at Real Microcredit also provide the rare opportunity to one senior high school student every year to feel the pace of finance in a supportive and collaborative environment with us.
