In 2011, BNA created “bankita” and “bankita poupança” accounts with support of the commercial banks included in the institution’s strategy of urging citizens to open a bank account and stimulate them on saving culture.
From 2011 up to December 2017, over 555,000 bankita accounts were opened by clients with low financial affordability with minimum value of 100 Kwanza, fruit of the education and financial inclusion programme.
Addressing the opening of the “Global Money Week”, run under the motto “Money Does Matter”, the banker said the implementation of the financial education in the school syllables started in 2012 through a BNA partnership with the Ministry of Education.
