MFO believes that financial education is critical to efforts to improve the financial capabilities of low-income consumers. Our work with the Global Financial Education Program allowed us to develop a rigorous curriculum that caters to the needs of low-income individuals as well as other education providers who are looking for such a curriculum to provide to their clients.
The Center for Financial Inclusion defines financial inclusion as: A state in which all people who can use them have access to a suite of quality financial services, provided at affordable prices, in a convenient manner, and with dignity for the clients. Financial services are delivered by a range of providers, most of them private, to a financially capable clientele.
Financial literacy is the knowledge and skills regarding the appropriate and effective management of money that is the basis for becoming financially capable.
Poverty is the greatest social problem a society can suffer from; it deprives individuals of their basic needs, denying them the opportunity to live a healthy and successful life. Financial education can contribute to poverty alleviation by enabling people to decrease their vulnerability and to take advantage of economic opportunities.
