  • Interactive financial education booth: all those who enter the Credit Fair will be invited to visit the interactive booth “DESCUBRE Lo Simple de las Finanzas” (Discovery the Simplicity of Finance) which includes several financial education games. Students will be invited to register on the platform

  • “DESCUBRE” Challenge: During GMW, a certificate and a gift will be delivered to those who complete the financial education program

Additionally throughout the week, the entities of Grupo Amaya Capacitaciones will be making several school visits. Cooperativas de Ahorro y Crédito Abiertas Inca Huasi, Quilacollo, San Mateo, Fatima, San Roque and La Promotora Entidad Finaniera de Vivienda will visit Educational Units from the different cities in Bolivia to teach students about various financial aspects. The expected result is that students will develop strong decision making skills regarding wise money management, awareness of their rights and obligations as financial users, and that young students learn how to recognize regulated and secure financial entities in Bolivia.

During the Week, Grupo Amaya Capacitaciones will aim for young people to get to know and better understand the operation of the Financial System in Bolivia and how ASFI (La Autoridad de Supervisión del Sistema Financiero) guarantees the safety of savings throughout the country

2015 Bolivia Global Money Week

Autoridad de Supervisión del Sistema Financiero (ASFI)
Banco Central de Bolivia
Date of event:
17th of March

The Banking Association of Bolivia, in partnership with eleven of its member institutions, developed a series of activities for the celebration of Global Money Week in Bolivia. The GMW celebrations in Bolivia were framed by the celebration of the annual Credit Fair, which was organized by the Banking Association of Bolivia (ASOBAN). An example of activities includes an interactive stand, in which participants had the opportunity to learn basic concepts of personal finance and acquired relevant skills to use while doing their financial planning. The stand placed particular importance on “goal setting” in respect to the process of financial planning, and also focused on how different products and services within the financial system can be of great help to achieve those goals.

During the fair, participants traveled the established route to learn about credit, how credit can play an important role in developing one’s personal finances, how to use credit and the security measures that need to be taken into consideration when using credit. By the end of the route, the youth were able to learn more about their personal finances and other financial instruments by enjoying a guided visit to the website, an online platform for financial education sponsored by the Banking Association of Bolivia.

Additionally, youth participants took part in a series of workshops focusing on the importance of goal setting, savings and general knowledge about the financial system of Bolivia.
