The students learnt the keys to launch a business, with special focus on those financial areas to consider, from a financial education approach.

 

The organization of workshops and activities to raise awareness on financial literacy among the entrepreneurs of the province is one of the goals of the agreement between Toledo Chamber of Commerce and the Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja.

 

Topics covered

 

From a financial education approach, the workshop has covered several topics related to how to launch a business project, such as how to manage finances, basic banking concepts, information on credits and other financial products, how to work on budget or the security of means of payment.

 

The Toledo Chamber of Commerce aims at promoting businesses and the development of entrepreneurship initiatives, with special focus on young people and fostering equality and improving the participation of women entrepreneurs.

 

In that line, and with the same objective of promoting entrepreneurship among young people, after the workshop there was time for the presentation and assessment of university commercial plans, and the students of the Business Management and Administration and Marketing degrees presented their business project as a self-employment alternative.

 

The Edufinet Project, has been for over 15 years bringing financial education closer to society, thus making Unicaja to be one of the first institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this kind.

 

Currently, more than twenty universities, institutions and business organizations collaborate with the project and so far, more than 180,000 people have participated in the workshops, seminars, courses and lectures organized.

 

All of the above make Unicaja to be one of the most active agents in the fields of financial education and inclusion, under the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and the commitment to society of both Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja.
