FinMango is on a mission to empower & educate lives with innovative financial solutions.
We use the sustainability, beauty, and popularity of mangos as a symbol of our exciting, non-traditional, and positive methods of teaching financial education.
Schools around the globe lack financial education programs. And although experts unanimously concur that there is a need, financial literacy has received little to no attention in our education curriculums.
This is why we at FinMango are so passionate about what we do... we know first-hand the power of money and the importance of knowing how it works! This is why our educational programs follow our money cycle model. Each “chapter” goes through different parts of the money cycle and we then apply it to the lives we touch.
At the end of our program, students are able to (at a minimum):
- Identify what money is
- Understand the difference between wants and needs
- Learn the importance of making and saving money
- Learn the basics of investments and its compounding effect
- Learn that spending responsibly and watchfully is perfectly alright
- Learn that being generous with our money (that we save and grow) helps us connect to the people around us and let them know we care.
Overall, teaching our kids to be financially savvy is a gift – one that will keep on giving throughout their lives. Let’s make a difference together and empower the next generation!

"I saw some children so happy and motivated to save money at the end of the session. I saw some teachers saying they regret they didn't have such programs when they were students. Then I understood financial education is what our society needs right now."

"The last minute speaker switch turned out to be one of best things that could have happened as there was no shortage of positive comments on [FinMango’s] interactive Budgeting session. We look forward to working with Scott and the rest of FinMango again as we grow Finance Day at UA!"
