Financial Inclusion

Financial Literacy Programme

Overview
Financial literacy is the first step to achieve financial inclusion, creating the need to seek and receive financial services and products. To increase awareness about organised banking and insurance channels, ICICI Foundation provides a Financial Literacy Programme.
Approach 
ICICI Foundation through its Rural Self Employment Training Institutes reaches out to unemployed rural youth and engages them in a Financial Literacy Programme spanning 12 hours of training. It is an integral part of all courses conducted at the ICICI RSETIs. The module engages with the youth through audio-visuals, flip-charts, games and self-analysis questionnaires. The training focuses on building awareness and cultivating healthy financial habits such as maintaining financial records, regular savings and investments. As a result, many of our trainees are now actively using banking channels and have secured credit linkages.
