Auntie-Need-a-Loan and Financial Education, CFI Blog, July 6 2012
Microfinance Transparency recently released an interactive video designed to share information about flat and declining interest rates in an engaging new way. It tells the story of “Chantal” and “Auntie-Need-a-Loan.” Auntie doesn’t read the terms and conditions of her loan. Unfortunately, her carelessness leads her to get tricked by loan predators, pay high fees, miscalculate her interest, and miss her loan payments. The concept was created to help industry stakeholders to convey important pricing transparency and consumer protection messages.
In addition to this animation, “Auntie-Need-a-Loan” will be featured in radio public service announcements, training materials and other print materials throughout Rwanda and Malawi.
