Financial literacy is something we all need but for many women around the world, it’s not a priority or wasn’t an educational opportunity. Modern role models aside, women have typically relied on their spouses to take care of the finances white they take care of the kids. It’s not something they’ve needed to know in many cases, until suddenly they do. And then it’s a desperate process to learn quickly and likely to make some mistakes.
Rosalia Gitau is one of those women. She became an orphan at age 14 when her mother died of cancer and had to figure out how to become financially secure. But her mother made one critical investment decision before she died that transformed the lives of her loved ones. You’ll hear about that investment decision in this interview, what that taught Rosalia, and what she’s doing to help educate other women around the world about financial security.
Rosalia is the winner of this year’s Money Awareness and Inclusion Awards. MAIA is an organization dedicated to the problem of weak financial literacy around the world and finding the best solutions to help people make better choices. Rosalia is also the founder and CEO of Bixie which is an app that helps people increase their financial literacy. You can find out more at her website, https://www.mybixie.com.
