Financial Literacy and Women

Making Smart Decisions with Your Money

Women in America are 35% more likely to live in poverty and 5 times more likely to live paycheck to paycheck than men. Becoming financially literate is imperative for women, so that they can gain the necessary knowledge to create a financially stable future for them and their loved ones.

Financial literacy is all about acquiring the tools and information that will allow you to make the right decisions with your money. Education gives you the confidence you need to plan for your future, starting from taking control of debt and understanding your cash flow, to building your retirement savings and implementing strategies to build wealth. As one of our Savvy Ladies has shared, “It’s not enough to be smart. You need to be savvy.”
