Queens of Money
Empower your money management decisions through conversations and learning.
“We, women are at the core of the family unit. Our dignity comes from wisdom and resilience to determine our present and our future. Money is a tool for our wellbeing.” Cleopatra Kitti.
In life, situations constantly occur that require us to make decisions.
Money management is an important tool to make informed decisions.
Our compass is our quality of our life and that of our children.
Understanding how money works ensures we are in control of our own choices.
It is a fact that we, women, earn less than men, and inevitably our pensions will be significantly less.
Therefore our quality of life choices for now and the future depend on our ability to save and invest.
Created out of a sense of purpose to share learnings, practical tips and tools, based on real life experience, Queens of Money equips us to make good financial decisions.
The global pandemic and the unpredictability of life, makes this learning an essential investment of your time.
