LISTA: Tablet-Based Financial Education

LISTA: Tablet-Based Financial Education

Abstract

Fundación Capital designed LISTA, a program founded on the notion of “freeing financial education” from the classroom via the use of tablet- and smartphone-based apps.

Researchers collaborated with Fundación Capital and the Government of Colombia to conduct a randomized evaluation of LISTA to study its impact on financial knowledge and behavior. Preliminary results indicate that the LISTA tablet application has had significant impacts on financial knowledge, attitudes toward formal financial services, financial practices, and financial outcomes.
