Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze the perception of high school students from Xalapa, Veracruz, towards six variables related to financial education: savings, investments, pensions, credits, debts, expenses and budgets. For the field activity, we designed an instrument and applied it to 401 enrolled students at the moment of the survey. The data were analyzed through exploratory factor analysis. It is concluded that high school students have a positive perception of financial institutions and the products they offer.
