Monetisation is increasing rapidly across the Pacific. Mr Sibley examined rural Fijian villagers’ knowledge of money and financial services, their attitude to money and their financial behaviours; and related this to their household’s economic wellbeing. He found a positive relationship between financial competence and household wellbeing, even in households which were not fully monetised. The findings provide guidance for policy development and related interventions to assist households and communities to both increase levels of financial inclusion and improve the management of household cash-flows.
