Assessing Digital and Financial Literacy in Samoa: Survey on Knowledge, Skills and Access
To address the digital and financial literacy gap, UNCDF conducted the Digital and Financial Literacy Survey in Samoa to assess the current state of digital and financial literacy within the country. The research explores experiences with traditional and digital financial services to-date, in addition to assessing basic competencies in the areas of digitization and finance.
The survey findings will be used to develop and implement targeted interventions for improving digital financial competencies among women, MSMEs, youth, migrant workers, and rural communities. The survey results are intended to serve as a baseline from which future changes in competencies, access, and usage can be measured by the regulators and development partners.
