The objective of our financial education and financial literacy projects is to empower young people and the active and potential low income users of financial services with financial knowledge and acumen.
Financial Education for the Underbanked: The BETA Talk session named after the proposition is our Financial Education Program for the Un (der) banked segments. The session is a face to face group session which uses storytelling, group exercises and discussions to teach its target audience especially women how to improve their savings practices with the formal financial institutions. The sessions are facilitated by Development Initiative Networks of Nigeria (DIN) in market/non market locations.
More recently, the Bank has commenced work towards expanding the reach of the BETA Savings account product through the use of fixed agents as the primary channel in areas beyond the reach of our sales and services agents and the branches.
