It is widely acknowledged that social exclusion causes long lasting harmful effect to the quality of life and future opportunities. According to Eurostat statistics, around three out of ten young people in Europe are experiencing social exclusion. This problem is also relevant in the Baltic countries. Many young people live in families facing the risk of poverty. One of the reasons for social exclusion is inability to manage personal finances. Personal finance management skills are necessary for everyone – regardless of the age, occupation or social status; everyone purchases everyday essentials – necessity goods.
