Financial literacy is directly linked to the well-being of citizens and the stability of the economy. In order to provide an opportunity for more Kazakhstani people to obtain information on personal finance and budget management, learn how to understand various banking and credit instruments, IDF Eurasia Group in Kazakhstan (Solva and Moneyman MFOs) has launched a special project on financial literacy for Kazakh-speaking audience.
Last year, the “Concept for Improving Financial Literacy for 2020-2024” was approved. Thus, programs aimed at financial education of the population in Kazakhstan are implemented not only in the form of private initiatives, but also at the level of the state.
Within the framework of social responsibility of business, IDF Eurasia Group in Kazakhstan (Solva and Moneyman MFOs) actively promotes financial literacy projects in all regions of the country. In order to further develop this area and to reach a wider audience, the company is launching a Personal Finance workshop in Kazakh language to be held in February 2021.
“The results of the last year have clearly shown that financial literacy of most of Kazakhstani people in regions and cities of the country leaves much to be desired. At the same time we noticed an acute lack of information about financial instruments in Kazakh language. In this connection, the IDF Eurasia Group has decided to initiate special projects on financial literacy for the Kazakh-speaking segment of our listeners,” notes the IDF Eurasia Group operations director in Kazakhstan, Dalida Davlyatshina.
The project is implemented in cooperation with the School of Financial Literacy #1. The lecturer will be Akzhunis Brasilova, an experienced financier and business trainer, a certified trainer of Atameken, director of the School of Financial Literacy.
“During the quarantine period, many people in Kazakhstan were left in a difficult financial situation. As a consequence, this contributed to an increase in citizens’ interest in financial literacy, particularly in the area of credit and managing their own money. We hope that through the Personal Finance programme, implemented jointly with the IDF Eurasia Group, we will help people in Kazakhstan to improve their financial situation as well as increase their knowledge of proper use of their own budget,” says Akzhunis Brasilova, director of the School of Financial Literacy #1.
The workshop will take place on 22-24 February 2021 in an online format. During the three-day training programme, the basics of financial literacy, personal and family budget issues, credit and investment topics in the banking, insurance and stock markets will be covered.
