Financial Literacy Participant Handbook: Module 6 – Credit basics (2011)

This is the sixth part of a nine-module workshop designed to train community workers to deliver financial literacy programs. The workshop, which can be presented over one or two days, was developed by the Canadian Centre for Financial Literacy (CCFL).

In this module, the authors provide handouts that explain a variety of types of credit, including credit cards, lines of credit, overdraft protection, consumer loans, mortgages, student loans, payday loans, and installment purchases. They also provide a chart comparing the costs of using various types of credit.

The document also includes tips for managing credit and an activity sheet to help participants set credit goals.

The CCFL is a division of Social and Enterprise Development Innovations (SEDI), a non-profit organization that helps low-income earners gain financial independence.
