    Abstract

    MoneyMinded was first introduced as a pilot project in the Solomon Islands in 2011 in collaboration with the Solomon Islands Women in Business Association and Rokotanikeni. From 2011-2013, 250 individuals from these organisations as well as a number of ANZ employees participated in the MoneyMinded program to build their financial skills, knowledge and confidence. Results from the survey conducted by the University of the South Pacific to understand the impact of the pilot program reveal that the majority of respondents reported that they have acquired useful and relevant financial knowledge and skills for their daily management of money, more positive attitudes and behaviors towards managing money, and a future orientation that involves setting financial goals, budgeting, saving and investing. Most had started saving and those who were already saving before the program increased the amount they saved. In addition, the MoneyMinded program has had a positive impact on the respondents’ outlook on life, as well as indirect positive effects on the participants’ families and friends.
