Financial Management for University Students

FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS

In collaboration with a small local NGO “The Champions”, Ginette and her team delivered 2 Financial Management workshops to students from various Universities in Kuching. We had 45 students boys & girls who participated to the event. Most of the students get loans to pursue their studies, but unfortunately have limited skills to manage their money, do a budget or understand how interest rates on loans work.

We focussed on:

  • Tracking expenses
  • Decide on a saving goal
  • Cash flow (Needs versus Want)
  • Plan a budget
  • Saving Strategy (emergency fund and future)
  • Tips to be money wise
  • Avoid scams

The feedback was very positive and the students found the workshops very beneficial.
