In an effort to cultivate a strong saving culture among Kenyans, the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) and the Central Bank of Kenya have joined hands to unveil a groundbreaking financial literacy campaign. This collaborative initiative aims to empower individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to make informed financial decisions and secure their financial futures.
With a deep understanding of the importance of saving and its positive impact on economic growth, the KBA and the Central Bank are taking proactive steps to address the need for enhanced financial education in Kenya.
The campaign seeks to reach individuals across the country, from all walks of life, by providing them with valuable insights and practical tools to develop sound saving habits. The primary target audience being the younger generation, as approximately 75 percent of the Kenyan population is comprised of individuals under the age of 35.
The initiative comes at a crucial time when many Kenyans continue to struggle with financial challenges exacerbated by the increase in high cost of leaving.
Governor Patrick Njoroge emphasized the fundamental significance of financial literacy in fostering economic growth and stability. He underscored that financial literacy extends beyond mere understanding of money and encompasses self-awareness and understanding of the consequences of financial choices for one’s future.
Njoroge further emphasized that by equipping young individuals with the necessary knowledge to manage their finances proficiently, we are constructing a resilient and prosperous nation.
On the other hand, KBA CEO Habil Olaka emphasized that the campaign aims to empower individuals by providing them with the necessary information to make well-informed choices regarding saving, banking, and financial management.
By enhancing financial literacy, the initiative seeks to address the challenges faced by a significant portion of the population, particularly the youth, in effectively managing their finances.
The CEO expressed the belief that equipping people with the knowledge and skills needed to secure their financial future will ultimately contribute to the overall economic prosperity of the country.
The KBA and CBK’s joint initiative to foster a saving culture is a commendable step towards improving financial literacy and empowering Kenyans to achieve their financial aspirations.
By equipping individuals with the necessary skills and resources, this collaboration has the potential to bring about a positive and lasting impact on the country’s economic landscape.
