Developing financial literacy from childhood contributes to the creation of a stable future in a society which understands the role of financial institutions in the development of the national economy and the welfare of the population.
ProCredit Bank has always believed that investing in children’s financial literacy is one of the most dependable ways to bring long-term benefits to society at large. Therefore, on Wednesday 06 June, ProCredit Bank’s branch in the Botanica district of Chisinau hosted a practical course in financial literacy for children from the PROSPERA Business Camp.
Around 35 children and their teachers visited branch no. 5 in the capital, where they had the chance to see first-hand how a bank works. They were shown the main elements in the bank’s day-to-day work, and the lifecycle of several banking services and the role these play in business development and promoting savings was explained. Also, the children were shown around the front office (the public area where clients are served) before making a short tour of the back office (the administration area).
Zuzu Bee, the well-known children’ friend, was also in the branch. She chatted and played with the children and at the end gave each of them a small gift.
The ProCredit Bank team would like to thank all the children who visited us. We are sure that this banking lesson will help them to better understand the role and importance of banks in society.
