With KidsFirst and MeFirst Accounts, FirstBank aims to foster Financial Inclusion among Children

Published

on


FirstBank of Nigeria Limited, Nigeria’s premier and leading financial inclusion services provider has announced its variant account products – KidsFirst and MeFirst – created to encourage the right savings culture among children from 0 – 17 years.


The offerings have relevant enhancements including appropriate parental guidance and financial discipline for children as they grow into adulthood. Both accounts can be opened with zero balance and operated with a minimum balance of N100.00.


KidsFirst Account is designed for children between the ages of 0 and 12 years to sensitise them on how exciting saving can be. The account comes with a trendy gift item for the child when the account is opened with a minimum of N10,000.00. The account is automatically transited to MeFirst account when the child is 13 years old.

MeFirst account, on the other hand, is designed for teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17. This account is created in recognition of the need to help teenagers embrace the culture of financial responsibility and cashless payment as they develop into young adults. They have access to attractive and trendy pre-paid cards through which parents/guardians can credit weekly/monthly allowance and monetary gifts. MeFirst account holders can select from 5 exciting card design options that suites their trendy style.

The Mefirst cards are enabled to pay for micro online shopping as desired – mobile games, apple music, Spotify and local POS transactions as well. Teens are thereby exposed to the cashless culture and electronic payment activities early in life, which is expedient in today’s digital age.Parents and guardians of the child are granted access to track and control the spend pattern.

Speaking on the accounts, Gbenga Shobo, FirstBank’s Deputy Managing Director said, “we are delighted with the role we play in promoting financial literacy amongst children and teenagers in the country. Our KidsFirst and MeFirst accounts are designed to ensure that parents and guardians are able to have their wards exposed to the right savings culture and financial discipline as they evolve to adulthood.”

With these accounts, parents are able to save and strengthen their preparedness for various financial obligations of their children like paying for school fees as they progress with their academic pursuit which is pivotal to securing the future of the children. MeFirst and KidsFirst accounts are essential gifts from parents to their children”.

CBN New Policy Alert: You can now Access Foreign Currency as sent from Overseas

Published

on




The Central Bank of Nigeria has come up with a new policy on foreign remittances, which is money sent to you from abroad. This is talking about foreign currencies, your Dollars, Pounds, Euros, Deutschmark, and the likes. This new policy states that there are no more restrictions on accessing such funds.

You can now get the money sent to you from abroad in cash over the counter at your bank exactly the way it was sent in foreign currency. That’s right. But there is more! You can also choose to have the funds remitted into your domiciliary account in the same currency it was sent without any hassle or stress.

This is such great news especially at this time of the year where such remittances are expected. Most people have sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, even spouses abroad and they are likely to send us some money for Christmas and the new year.  

Now if you have money being sent to you from abroad, just walk into your receiving bank, provide the required documents and receive your money in cash i.e., foreign currency as sent over the counter or you can have it deposited into your domiciliary account.
