Muscogee (Creek) Nation collaborates with TFCU to offer financial workshop
Nation helps citizens to understand finances
OKMULGEE, Oklahoma — The Muscogee (Creek) Nation wants to help citizens sharpen their education with their finances.
A partnership with Tinker Federal Credit Union, the MCN Department of Housing held a financial empowerment workshop on Jan. 14 through their Ross Financial Grant.
MCN Service Coordinator for the Ross Grant, Jessica Hudson thinks there are numerous opportunities to give the citizens financial education.
“There’s a lot of different aspects and a lot of different ranges for individuals and everyone can benefit from this workshop,” she said.
TFCU Financial Educator Giovanni Monterroso said the main theme for the workshop was how to get out of debt.
“We discussed the importance of having a goal and working to achieve it,” he said.
Monterroso said the participants were very engaging when he had questions for them. At the end of the workshop, they were talking and thanking him for the advice from the workshop.
“At the end of the day, many of them came and told me that they learned many practical things and planned on implementing for their own finances,” he said.
Hudson there will be other financial workshops in the future. She wants to hold at least one workshop every few months.
“There maybe more than that,” she said. “There will be at least two more before the Summer.”
