Financial Literacy is a key step towards achieving full financial inclusion. Accion’s financial literacy program helps low-income individuals improve their ability to manage their personal and household finances and become informed and effective consumers of financial services. The core financial management skills provided in our programs allow low-income individuals to move beyond credit management to access and effectively use important asset-building tools such as savings and insurance. Financial literacy is also a critical component of consumer protection, creating knowledgeable clients who can more effectively use financial services and avoid the risks of over-indebtedness. Accion's financial literacy program is targeted at low-income household members with low levels of education and includes courses on financial planning, cash flow management, budgeting, investing, insurance, savings and debt. Our comprehensive suite of financial literacy materials focuses on areas where low-income clients can most dramatically improve their quality of life, with topics such as income generation, asset building, financial management and risk management.
