Hi Ludwig! I like this idea a great deal. Thanks for suggesting it.

I have a question about scaling the idea though. In the question description, the authors mention that essentially half the world doesn't have access to financial services. I love the idea of having those knowledgeable about financial services pass down their knowledge, but it seems like their is a large area where these experts may not be available outright. Can you think of a way to scale this idea to not only teach financial literacy, but also to bridge those students into using financial products?

I'm thinking some starting ideas might be to have community spaces where experts can teach via a virtual presence, or perhaps some form of self-directed learning with an incentive structure based on building a first bank account.
