Banco Macro is carrying out a financial education program for the elderly in Misiones and Chaco

Posadas, August 7th, 2013. Banco Macro is carrying out a financial education program for the elderly in the provinces of Misiones and Chaco. The aim of this training program is to collaborate with the elderly’s financial education and to help them access the bank’s automatic channels.

A team of teachers from Banco Macro will be accompanying the elderly approaching the relevant branches.

At this stage, the educational program will be run from August 1st, 2013, to January 31st, 2014, from 8 am to 1 pm in the Belgrano, Apóstoles, Sur Posadas and Resistencia branches.

The aim will be to work with the elderly as soon as they go into the building in order to be paid their pension with a view to providing them with a lesson which can convey the value of the use of ATMs and debit cards in order to enjoy greater comfort and safety.

The elderly will be taught through tablets simulating an ATM screen in addition to an educational handout for them to reinforce the concepts learnt.

It is important to highlight that at no time will the teachers involved request passwords or personal data and that the program will only be run as a simulation exercise within the branches.

This initiative is a part of a series of programs aimed at encouraging the elderly to use the bank’s alternative channels and is complemented by others aimed at promoting financial education, such as the Web portal www.macroconlosabuelos.com.ar, the educational "Mini Branch," which has already visited more than three provinces, and Aventuras financieras, the magazine for the youngest of the family.

"At Banco Macro we are aware of the need to provide senior citizens with tools which enable them to carry out their banking transactions by making use of our different alternative channels, thus becoming friends with technology, which will in turn improve their quality of life," expressed Institutional Relations Manager Milagro Medrano.
