ANZ boosts its Pacific app_9

The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) today announced a new partnership to deliver ANZ’s adult financial education programs, MoneyMinded and Business Basics, to enable women in rural regions in five Pacific island countries: Fiji, Kiribati, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and Vanuatu. The partnership will see accredited ANZ facilitators deliver financial education with feminine marketplace vendors, entrepreneurs and small business owners across several UNDP supported jobs. Patrick Tuimalealiifano, Deputy Team Leader of Inclusive Growth Programme at the UNDP Pacific workplace, said this partnership is about more than simply balancing a budget. “We want to help rural market sellers, predominantly girls, move away from subsistence living, and MoneyMinded has proven success in helping Pacific people develop a positive vision for their own future,” he said. “We’ve got one programme particularly that’s all about enabling women to take a more prominent part within their own family’s fiscal decision making. Building their confidence at home translates into optimism locally and we begin seeing these women emerge as community leaders, entrepreneurs and businesswomen. It is a gradual process and it starts in the family.” ANZ Regional Executive Pacific, Tessa Price, said the partnership with UNDP empowers ANZ MoneyMinded to achieve deeper to rural areas and target different groups, especially women. “We have done a lot of work using quite a few unique groups, for example seasonal employees ANZ boosts its Pacific app who get MoneyMinded training before they travel to Australia and New Zealand. This partnership with the UNDP way we will be hitting into rural communities and to women that are in the center of the home,” Ms Price said.

ANZ Fiji Country Head Saud Minam said MoneyMinded helped attract cash confidence and modern banking centers to more rural areas. “We’re seeing more individuals in rural regions building their understanding about saving and planning for the near future, and accessing modern banking centers such as our ANZ Pacific App,” Mr Minam stated. “Equipped with those banking solutions and MoneyMinded skills, returning seasonal workers, and villagers who run their own small businesses in rural areas, such as market sellers, can spend more time building a sustainable income to protect their livelihoods and support their families.” Approximately ANZ MoneyMinded and Business Basics ANZ has delivered MoneyMinded and Business Basics to over people across the Pacific because 2010.
