The Financial Education Program is aimed at young people from 12 to 19 years old, belonging to low-income families, who are in high school education. Its main objectives are to help young beneficiaries complete their high school education, and to ensure that they acquire financial and administrative knowledge and skills, providing them with a banking product that facilitates their inclusion in the financial system. BBVA grants each beneficiary a Visa Rechargeable Card, through which they receive a monthly amount for their education-related expenses. Together with pedagogical tutors from the partner institutions, the beneficiaries of the Program are provided with the necessary administrative and financial tools, which will help them plan their monthly expenses and think "economically". In this way, in addition to having a first approach to a banking institution, they will incorporate concepts on the investment of money, responsible consumption and tax culture.
