A majority of the ladies who join 31 Bits have never had a bank account, or even stepped foot into a bank. It is important that each of them open a bank account, as it will be their first time receiving a consistent income. Through our programs, they learn how to save, manage, and invest their money wisely.
As women join our program, we want to make sure that they are not only comfortable going to the bank, but that they understand the process of withdrawing and depositing money. Our Business and Finance Manager Ray, and Director of Development Julie, recently took some of them for a field trip to the local bank!
They were full of giggles as they drove away with “Daddy Ray” and “Mamma Julie”!
