94% of people that participated in the ANZ MoneyMinded financial education program are now able to save a minimum of $290 on a monthly basis.

This is according to an independent report on the financial education program by Melbourne's RMIT University.

While speaking at the launch of the report, Reserve Bank of Fiji's Governor, Ariff Ali says the MoneyMinded program has played a positive role in changing the savings mindset of Fijians.

Around 12,000 Fijians have taken part in the MoneyMinded program since it was first launched in Fiji in 2010.

The report also found that 95% of the participants were able to provide for their families and 93% were less stressed about their future.

It was also found that 94% now have a saving habit.

ANZ Fiji Country Head Saud Minam says the MoneyMinded program supports the Fijian Government and Reserve Bank of Fiji's National Financial Inclusion Taskforce to improve financial inclusion rates and financial capabilities of Fijians.
