This session, attended by 140 students, falls within the programme Edufiagro, a new section of Edufinet’s portal on financial education for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), which offers specific information on the main financial products and needs of the agricultural sector.

 

The recent incorporation of Edufiagro to the Edufinet Project responds to the traditional support given by Unicaja to agriculture, from the conviction that this sector is a fundamental key for the social and economic development.

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has given for the first time a talk about financial education for agriculture, circular economy and sustainable finance, addressed to students of vocational training on these areas at the IES Universidad Laboral in Malaga.

 

This session, attended by 140 students, falls within the programme Edufiagro, a new section of Edufinet’s portal on financial education for business owners and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), which offers specific information on the main financial products and needs of the agricultural sector.

 

The recent incorporation of Edufiagro to the Edufinet Project responds to the traditional commitment of Unicaja to agriculture, from the conviction that this sector is a fundamental key for the social and economic development.

 

The two-hour workshop has allowed the students to become familiar with concepts such as circular economy and sustainable finance, as well as to learn about some financial products and services specially designed for the farming sector.

 

In particular, the goal is to teach students those basic aspects of economics and finances related to the farming activity, so that they can act autonomously in this area in their career.

 

The Edufinet Project on financial education is a pioneering programme in Spain, which currently collaborates with 14 universities and more than ten business institutions and organizations. Its work for the promotion and improvement of the financial literacy of citizens has been recognized with several awards.

 

A pioneering financial education initiative

 

The Edufinet Project launched in 2007 its Internet portal, fostered by Unicaja, with the collaboration of the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía (UNIA) and of the University of Malaga (UMA), although the development of the project began in 2005 within Unicaja.

 

During its nearly 15 years of trajectory, more than 146,600 people have participated directly in the different conferences and workshops developed, of which more than 108,000 were young people. Its website (www.edufinet.com) has received so far over 7.8 million visits, with consults and access from more than 180 countries.

 

The said Internet portal offers systematic and practical information in a question-answer format and where no previous knowledge is required. Two specific portals were created later: the first one, addressed to businessmen and entrepreneurs (Edufiemp), and the second one, on financial education for young people (Edufinext).

 

In addition to the Conferences on Financial Education for Young People and the Financial Olympics, Edufinet promotes as well workshops and lectures at universities, summer courses or participation in international projects. It also fosters several publications, such as the ‘Financial Guide’ or the ‘Financial Guide for business owners and entrepreneurs’.
