Peningkatan Literasi Keuangan bagi Pekerja Migran Indonesia di Taiwan dalam Perwujudan Kemandirian Finansial

Indah Fajarini Sri Wahyuningrum, Retnoningrum Hidayah, Dhini Suryandari

The number of Indonesian migrant workers (PMI) in Taiwan has increased significantly yearly because it is supported by a good legal and employment system with relatively high salaries for long working contracts. However, this condition is not accompanied by strong financial independence within the Indonesian migrant worker community in Taiwan due to low knowledge regarding financial literacy. This community service was initiated to provide a comprehensive solution through workshops on financial literacy so Indonesian migrant workers in Taiwan can manage their finances well. The service team from the Faculty of Economics and Business, Semarang State University, presented knowledge regarding introducing personal finance, financial planning and management, and the concept of savings, investment, and insurance. The results of the pretest and post-test comparison and implementation assistance show that Indonesian migrant workers in Taiwan have understood financial literacy knowledge and can carry out effective and efficient financial management. Through the results of this service, the service team hopes that financial literacy knowledge will become one of the mandatory provisions in training and work preparation for Indonesian migrant workers before leaving for their destination country.
