Commitment to savings culture

ANZ remains committed to driving a savings culture across Fiji through MoneyMinded, to empower people to improve their lives and those of their families and communities through strong financial management, says ANZ Fiji country head, Saud Minam.

Mr Minam made the statement yesterday as the bank welcomed the opportunity it received to take its flagship financial literacy program to 55 participants at Kade Village on Koro Island.

He said the ANZ team was passionate about taking MoneyMinded to Koro which was severely affected by Cyclone Winston in February 2016 and where rehabilitation efforts after the cyclone still continued.

The ANZ MoneyMinded team was on Koro Island last month.

ANZ's MoneyMinded facilitator and Suva-based senior personal banker, Patricia Pickering, who travelled to Koro, said: "Being on the ground at Koro was overwhelming. They are in the process of rebuilding their lives and homes after Cyclone Winston, and we were happy to be a part of their journey."

Ms Pickering said MoneyMinded was very well received by their community and we hope the programme makes a positive difference to their lives.

While on Koro, ANZ's volunteers helped distribute two computers and a printer — given by the Reserve Bank of Fiji — to each of the seven primary schools on the island. They also distributed about 800 school backpacks under the "Christmas Carols in Koro" initiative organised by the Reach 4 Your Future Foundation.
