Charities that train people and deliver financial advice. In countries where there are low literacy rates, and many people are unfamiliar with banking services, access to financial services may not be enough to help clients lift themselves out of poverty. Clients must also receive financial training to learn basic skills related to earning, spending, budgeting and borrowing money.
This financial advice is designed to help clients:
- Better understand the wide range of financial services available to them
- Increase their use of savings accounts and insurance products
- Better manage their credit
- Diversify their assets
Today, Opportunity International has more than 400 modules available for loan officers to use. Our modules are designed to enable every client, regardless of his or her background or education level, to make informed and confident choices about financial products and services.
They also give clients access to information on health, leadership, self-esteem, gender, communication, work-life balance, civic responsibility and more.
