Keystone Bank Teaches Nigerian Students Financial Literacy



By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Over 3,000 secondary school students across Nigeria were recently taught healthy financial practices and skills by Keystone Bank Limited.

This is part of the lender’s determination to promote financial literacy and early saving culture among children for them to have a secure future.

It is also part of its activities to mark this year’s Global Money Week and the Financial Literacy Day set aside by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to deepen financial literacy in the country. This year’s event was themed Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Your Money.

To commemorate this year’s anniversary, senior employees of Keystone Bank visited 37 schools across the states in Nigeria to empower students with knowledge on how to manage their finances, the importance of acquiring and earning money, creating livelihoods, becoming entrepreneurs, budgeting, and tips to imbibe the culture of saving.

Commenting on the relevance of financial literacy amongst students, the acting Divisional Head, Marketing and Corporate Communications, Keystone Bank, Ms Izore Bamawo, said that the programme would help drive financial inclusion and promote a healthy saving culture amongst children.

“Keystone Bank is committed to continuously encouraging financial inclusion and supporting financial literacy amongst children as it will help enhance their financial acumen thereby producing financially sound individuals,” she said.

Ms Bamawo further noted that the initiative which aligns with the bank’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) pillars on education and youth empowerment would help young people gain financial freedom through prudent money management and clear differentiation of needs and wants.

Keystone Bank is a technology and service-driven commercial bank offering convenient and reliable solutions to its customers.

The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
