Visa is developing a financial web game to educate young Malaysians on how to make sound financial decisions.
According to a report in Malay Mail, the game, called ‘Mind Your Ringgit’ (MYR) which is part of Malaysia’s Financial Literacy Month 2020, tests players to make financial decisions based from real-life events.
The game is associated with the National Strategy for Financial Literacy 2019-2023, driven by the Financial Education Network and co-chaired by Bank Negara Malaysia and the Securities Commission Malaysia.
Making financial literacy fun
“At Visa, we have been focused on promoting the importance of financial literacy for many years now, including partnerships with Agensi Kaunseling dan Pengurusan Kredit (AKPK), who is also a member of the Financial Education Network.
“Mind Your Ringgit is a creative way that adopts a digital approach towards helping young Malaysians learn how to balance their money, health, and happiness based on real-life scenarios,” said the Visa Country Manager for Malaysia, Ng Kong Boon.
If you think this game sounds pretty interesting, well, you’ll be able to get your hands on it next year.
