Financial Literacy training brings hope for locals

Mrs Nandawa is employed and has a regular income but admits she did not budget or save and the training has now prompted her to change.

“After this training, I have learnt so much. This time I believe I can build a good savings for my family,” said Mrs Nandawo.

And a student from Nalu College, Shane Jaol, who also attended a training session, reiterated similarly: “The lessons learnt will help me to put into practice the budgeting and saving concept. Thank you BSP”.
