Awareness Programme for
Financial & Digital Literacy
Financial Inclusion is a quest for making financial services accessible at affordable costs to all individuals and businesses, regardless of their net worth and size.
As a Small Finance Bank, while catering to the rural and even urban population, AU noticed that the formal education doesn’t completely educate people on financial literacy and that people mostly rely on someone else to take their financial decisions. So, simply making the banking services available to the public wasn’t enough. We realised that there is an urgent need for financial literacy among the audience for them to truly understand the banking services and then use them for their financial prosperity. Financial literacy needs to start from the very basics of how money is made, spent, and saved.
AU foundation organises financial and digital literacy camps, targeting both rural and urban areas. We seek our audience’s by using alternate strategies wherein instead of inviting them to directly learn about banking, we first invite them to participate in interactive activities, making it a fun learning process. What makes us different is the delivery mechanism and unique curriculum designed specifically to target people in the demography. Creative and infotainment elements keep our camps interesting and the audience engaged throughout. We make them aware about banking products and also help in building trust for banking systems using simple and easy terminology and local dialects.
I see that my say now has a value in my house, unlike before when I wasn’t earning anything.
