Project Description

The project addresses the problems faced by the social group of senior citizens above the age of 55 as more specifically it seeks to:
-Strengthen skills in the use of basic financial services
-Increase the knowledge for documentation and identification of documents required for opening accounts among financial institutions
-Strengthen their self-confidence through financial education
-Familiarize them with the financial system, the various fees, and the national charges
-Provide them with practical skills for safe financial management and enabling them to have better decision-making in the financial challenges
