#WWNetworkAfrica #FLOW -“Why is Financial Literacy Important for Women?”

“Money has some rules attached to it.

And if you follow the rules, you’re going to have more stability in your life than if you don’t follow the rules.

Doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman.

The rules are the same: You need to have a plan for how you use your money, you need to have a healthy credit identity, you need to have emergency money and some insurance.

I think it’s really important that we come to realize that life is about balance, that it’s not all or nothing. It’s not spending every waking moment thinking about money or spending no time thinking about money.

Managing money isn’t really that hard. It requires some discipline and there is some detail involved, but in reality it doesn’t take that much time and the payback is huge.” –Gail Vaz-Oxlade

The Bridesmaid Series by Eketi Edima Ette [Part I]

PART 1

I used to be a professional bridesmaid, until the series of events I’m about to tell you, led to my retirement.

I first began to think of retiring after Wedding 1. I arrived the town in which the wedding was taking place, and discovered that the bride had arranged for just one room for eight bridesmaids in a rundown hotel. The room she’d gotten was filthy; the floor was thickly coated with dust. Two used condoms lay on the floor and on the bed, were old, stained beddings.

Financial Literacy Month Whole Woman Network

 “When a woman has knowledge which is power, it impacts and benefits the whole family.  I’m maximizing my potential and I started doing so at the age of 21. I believe that once the women realize the potential they have and maximize it, then we will have successful homes, communities and countries. It is my calling to reach as many women and people, in general, as I can. Together, we can make poverty become something of the past.” ~Leah Karimi~
