This year for the first time in Perú, Global Money Week involved both the public and private sector, schools, universities, civil society organizations, associations and more in financial education initiatives at the national level in the pursuit of a common goal: to encourage the population, especially children and youth, to create a culture of savings. Global Money Week is in line with the actions of the National Strategy for Financial Inclusion Peru, within the framework of the development of awareness campaigns to promote savings as a means to achieve short and long term goals, as well as a means to reducing vulnerabilities in the population.

Peru launched the celebrations of this year's Global Money Week on 16 March with activities in Lima, San Martín, Piura, Huancayo, Arequipa and Cusco. Activities in Peru not only focused on children and youth, but also took the involvement of parents and teachers into consideration when striving to develop financial capabilities at a younger age. The Ministry of Education and the Superintendence of Banks and Banco de Crédito de Perú initiated activities at the national level, making this the first Global Money Week of national outreach in Peru.

Activities in Peru included three days of school visits and various recreational activities and celebrations, in which children and youth learned about savings, the importance of a stable financial system and, of course, had a lot of fun. Torito, the mascot of the Superintendence Financial Education program, took finances to the classroom and shared his best advice with children all over the country. Global Money Week was an incredibly busy week for Torito.

Additionally, radio stations helped spread the message of saving and value for money to children and youth by conducting various programs. Global Money Week closed with an impressive Savings Fair on Friday 19 March in the capital city of Lima.

Institute of Peruvian Studies
Banco de Crédito de Peru
Visa International
National Congress
Ministries of Education
Ministries of Economy
Date of the event:
13th – 16th of March

Global Money Week celebrations were framed by the commemoration of the Consumer Protection week in Peru. One of the lead Global Money Week activities was the combined effort of multiple national authorities in redrafting the National Curriculum Design (DCN) to include Economic Citizenship Education.

During this year’s celebrations the Superintendencia de Bancos (SBS), the Institute of Peruvian Studies (IEP), Banco de Crédito de Peru (BCP), Visa International, the National Congress and the Ministries of Education and Economy joined efforts to ensure that the experience was unforgettable for children and youth who took part in it.

Children and youth learned about finances by playing the most popular sport in Latin America: Football. Visa International’s Financial Football puts child and youth financial skills to the test in a fast-paced, multiple-choice question game. The game tested players' knowledge on financial management skills as they advance down the field and try to score.

The National Congress organized a series of activities that allowed children and youth to share experiences about the financial issues that most concerned them. This activity included financial education games, workshop and hand-outs which explained the importance of the appropriate management of resources. Under the motto “The Progress Route” partners in Peru also organized a financial education fair for children and youth and their families. Together they walked the ‘route to progress’ in the 2 day long fair that focused on personal and family finances.
