The Colombian government organized a day of financial education Sunday for the LGBT community in the country’s second-largest city, Medellin.
The Interior Ministry and the Agrarian Bank focused on personal finances on the day of financial education. The purpose of the program was to explain fundamental concepts of the economic system and guidelines for making decisions on financial matters in a simple and clear manner, a press release on the Ministry’s website said.
An Agrarian Bank employee explained on the Ministry’s website that the project did not have any commercial interests, but was meant to provide knowledge to people on how to use financial products and services and how to improve their quality of life through a rationalized use of revenues and expenses.
The ministry said it is seeking to protect the rights of the LGBT community and ethnic population as consumers.
