We’ve launched a new Financial Literacy Program dubbed Wallstreet Mtaani, whose core objective is to improve financial literacy in Kenya and Africa at large.
The initiative stems from the belief that many matters in banking, investment or even economic growth can affect everyone in society, whether directly or indirectly. For instance, a change in monetary policy by the Central Bank may result in higher commodity prices, which affects the local mama mboga who in turn sells vegetables to the big CEO.
The programs seeks to gauge and impart financial knowledge on to the general public by going into the streets to ask ordinary people ‘general knowledge’ finance questions in an informal, fun and interactive way.
The topics selected for discussion are simple and engaging, after which a simple explanation to the queries is provided after the interviews.
By sharing the people’s feedback on social media, the program prompts viewers to also challenge themselves to see whether they would have answered the questions correctly.
With this, the Wallstreet Mtaani aims to bridge the financial literacy gap that has slowed down economic growth and development of many African economies for generations, one awesome video at a time.
