While leading a delegation from the Ministry of Youth and Sports to the island of #Kadavu, the line Minister Parveen Kumar said financial literacy is one of the major challenges facing young #Fijians in becoming self-sufficient.
“We want to inspire the youth to address the daily challenges they face, “ Minister Kumar said while closing the Empowerment Training on Financial Literacy yesterday.
