By: Yaw Sarpong

As part of the activities to mark the 35th Anniversary of the Christian Community Microfinance Limited (CCML), the company has taken school kids from selected client schools through Financial Literacy.

The programme which was under the theme “Financial Literacy for kids,” aimed to promote a culture of Biblical Financial Discipline among the school kids.

Mrs. Sylvia Adobea Adadey, a member of the anniversary committee explained that this programme was to help school children understand the need for savings and the importance of banking.

She further explained that if school children were financially literate at an early age it will go a long way to inform the decisions they take in the future and help them make career choices.

The two schools which participated in the Financial Literacy Day were Kisseman Evangelical Presby School and His Divine Grace Academy. School children were taken through four different sessions.

Experts in financial services took the school children through sessions on “Instilling a culture of Biblical Financial Discipline; orientation on various departments in a bank and why these departments exist; about CCML and it uncommon products and services; how banking started and why banks still exist.

Mr. Charles Deegbe, Marketing Manager in charge of Savings stated that he was impressed by the response of the kids and the zeal they exhibited.

School children later wrote an ICT based quiz. The winner Paulina Amedornu of Kisseman Evangelical will later be presented with a CCML Liquid Super Saver Account at her school.

CCML the premier Microfinance Company in Ghana is 35 years old and is wholly owned by the Christian Community of Ghana (CCG) with 24 branches nationwide. CCML offers uncommon financial products like Savings, Loans and Investments.
