Strong support for the Financial Education School Program

Well aware of how important it is for young people of school age to have the proper knowledge to be able to develop financial attitudes and behaviors that will enable them to make appropriate decisions, Bladex continues to sponsor the financial education program for high school students promoted by the Panama Banking Association at the country’s public schools.

 

This year, a group of members of the Volunteer Committee provided the training to graduating and undergraduate students at the Marie Poussepin Educational Center, a school built by the Bank in Panama City through the Fundación Crece Latinoamérica.  The program covered six modules focused mainly on the following topics: Money, Savings and Investment; Personal Finance Management; Financial System and National Economy; and Banking and Technology, among others.
