With April being observed as Financial Literacy Month, banker Nickeisha Cleary is reminding Jamaicans that prioritising and protecting their financial health amid the COVID-19 pandemic is vital.

Cleary, who is assistant manager, mobile banking at JN Bank, said that if more persons have a solid handle on their finances, they will be better able to withstand the impact of the pandemic and also be better prepared for a post-COVID-19 economy.

Cleary was addressing a recent financial awareness webinar hosted by The University of the West Indies, Mona Library and the Mona Library Health and Wellness Committee (LHEWco), which was held under the theme: ‘Navigating through Financial Crisis – There is Always Hope’.
