ANZ Bank last week welcomed the opportunity to deliver the bank’s flagship financial literacy program, MoneyMinded, to the second batch of Fijian carpenters heading to New Zealand to assist with rebuilding efforts in Christchurch.

ANZ Bank’s Manager Rural and  Micro Banking & Corporate Responsibility, Sitiveni Marovia said ANZ was committed to making a meaningful difference in the community.

“We’re committed to helping our customers and communities prosper in Fiji and across the Pacific and we appreciate that remittances play a significant role in driving economic growth and supporting household income across the region,” Mr Marovia said.

“We want to support the groups of Pacific workers through our MoneyMinded program.”

Mr Marovia explained that when ANZ delivers MoneyMinded, accredited trainers aim to equip participants with tools to plan for the future, save money, budget and set realistic and achievable goals.

“We want to empower participants to make the most of these sorts of opportunities for themselves, their families and communities. Our people are our greatest asset, and with enhanced financial literacy skills, we believe they can make a substantial contribution to Fiji’s economic growth.”

MoneyMinded has been successfully delivered to some 9000 people across the Pacific since it was introduced in 2010.

In Fiji MoneyMinded complements ANZ’s rural and microfinance initiatives in remote areas. About 30 ANZ staff are currently accredited to deliver MoneyMinded in Fiji.

MoneyMinded has been delivered to about 355,000 people across Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific since 2003.

The delivery of MoneyMinded to the group of Fijian carpenters was made possible thanks to the Fiji Ministry of Employment, Productivity & Industrial Relations Foreign Employment Service.
