Financial literacy is very important in everyone’s lives. Being able to properly make financial decisions has a huge impact on one’s future and it's really important that everyone is able to make good and educated decisions. Even if all of this is true, there are a lot of people in this world who are not aware of the impact this has, and even if they do they may not have all of the necessary information. Something this relevant in everyone’s lives should be taught in places like high schools, but this isn't true. Due to this reason we decided to create a small website with fundamentals in basic financial aspects in our lives.
What it does
This is a website created to help people learn what financial literacy is and why it is important. Not only that but it includes some basic information on common topics such as types of bank accounts, credit score and planning a budget. It also has a small interactive portion to engage people.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
By the end of the hackathon, we were able to create a working website which reflected our initial vision. Also, we were able to create interactive components in our website which provided real-time feedback. In addition to improving our technical skills, we also gained knowledge in financial literacy and found ourselves in a fun and collaborative environment.
What we learned
What's next for Learning Financial Literacy Website
Some next steps would be to include much more detailed and professional information on more topics related to finance such as investing, taxes and the stock market. Making the website have more sections and organization would be a good step. Making the interactive portions be more diverse is a change that would greatly improve the product.
