An innovative approach to increase the financial literacy skills of migrants


Financial education studies show that many migrants are not well prepared to make important financial decisions, and have specialized financial needs related to remittances, financial decisions, financial management, etc. Migrants are willing to seek further information to help make financial decisions. Better access to and use of basic financial services seems to be an area where improvement is needed and the levels of financial education they report are influenced by levels of education. INFINITY seeks not only to develop the migrant’s financial literacy skills but to develop a state of the art educational material including elements of entrepreneurship, soft skills, and sustainability in order to increase self-employment and ensure that migrants become productive members that contribute to society and thus promote the welfare and growth of the area they live in.
