There’s also resources for  workplaces, communities and schools including an online Money Style quiz for 9-13 year olds.

If you can’t wait til next week you can do a financial fitness check right now online.

Meanwhile over the ditch they’ve already completed their MoneyWeek 2014 with lots of winners profiled.  One of these winners is Good Shepherd Microfinance who are also partnering organisations in NZ in providing interest-free loans for people on low incomes. One of these partnerships is a pilot with Aviva (Christchurch Women’s Refuge).

The Aussies have also produced a nifty infographic showing who is saving and for what and promoting their saving app.
