Banking for Kids


Banking is the business of providing financial services such as lending money, safeguarding deposits and managing investments for consumers and businesses. Banks are the main financial institutions that provide banking services. Banks play a critical role in the way goods and services are purchased by providing a medium of exchange (cash, checks, credit cards). Banks also channelize flow of money to productive use in the society by accepting deposits from savers and lending to borrowers, allowing the economy to grow.
