Fifteen Thousand Rostov Residents Helped by Financial Literacy Centre
To date, 15,000 Rostov residents have used the services of the Financial Literacy Centre in Rostov-on-Don. This is a joint social and educational project by Center-invest Bank and Southern Federal University. Open to all, the Centre provides free advice and training for all groups of the population.
Visitors to the Centre can obtain both theoretical and practical knowledge about the economic and financial issues that matter to them.
Experts from the bank regularly train students to work as volunteers at the Centre. The training covers: personal financial management, business planning, sensible borrowing, online banking, taxation, and the safe use of bank cards.
On Tuesdays the Centre runs classes for pensioners. Members of the older generation can learn how to: pay their bills from the comfort of their home, identify a good deposit account, use their bank card to obtain their pension without having to queue, and make safe electronic payments. They can also ask any questions they might have about financial issues.
For entrepreneurs the Centre provides free training in using Center-invest Bank’s online business banking system. They can also obtain advice on business planning, taxation, finance and bookkeeping from specialists with an in-depth knowledge of these issues.
