What is MyBnk
MyBnk are a charity who deliver financial and enterprise education directly to schools and youth organisations. Through their programmes 38,000 11-25 year olds have learnt to manage their money and make enterprising decisions.
Why they do it
UK personal debt is at a record £1.5 trillion, around £9,000 per person and 90% of the UK population have never received any form of money management lessons. Nearly a million young people are out of work.
From working in education in Zimbabwe and Brac in Bangladesh, inspired by Grameen Bank microfinance and with help from fellow entrepreneurs - the story of MyBnk starts with their founder Lily Lapenna.
