Partners Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) and the World Savings and Retail Banking Institute (WSBI) invite you to join us for an exciting webinar with presentations of pioneering savings banks building financial capabilities of children and youth.

Banco Caja Social (Colombia) and MicroBank (Spain) will present the ways in which they are supporting financial inclusion of young people while building their financial capabilities. BCS, partner of the YouthSave consortium, offers savings accounts to children in combination with elements of financial education. MicroBank partners with a large number of local social sector and municipal institutions to build young people’s financial and entrepreneurship capabilities before providing them with loans or financing for their ventures.

Both cases provide interesting models on how financial institutions can shape their interaction with, and responsibility towards a new generation of customers, and how a multi-stakeholder approach can provide added value to all parties involved.

Join us on June 25 at 3pm CET to hear their experiences first-hand and to get practical advice for your own organization, partner-program, or community.

Don’t miss it!
