UCPB recently facilitated the opening of Start2Save (S2S) Junior Savings accounts of students from Our Lord of Mercy School of Caloocan, Inc. (OLOMS) and Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila School (LRMS) in Cainta, Rizal.
Aimed at promoting financial education to children and teens, S2S roadshows were held at the OLOMS Foundation Day on February 15, 2019 and the LRMS Family Day on February 22, 2019.
Students who opened savings accounts excitedly received their UCPB S2S welcome kits containing their own passbook, ATM card, notepad, stickers and a birthday coupon.
These are the first two school roadshows organized by UCPB for 2019 in support of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and Bank Marketing Association of the Philippines’ Banking on Your Future (BOYF) program. Recently, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas approved the Bank’s request to set up temporary kiosks and to accommodate account opening outside the Bank’s premises during school roadshows to encourage more students in opening their own savings accounts.
