Abstract

The purpose of this study aimed to find out how the program to increase financial literacy in Indonesian ex- migrant workers and families by the government through a qualitative case study approach. The consumptive behaviour of migrant workers and families had them fall into poverty again when the overseas employment contract period was over. The financial literacy improvement program through outreach program financial education activities aimed to increase the knowledge, confidence, and skills of the ex-migrant worker and families through constructive learning so that they were able to manage remittance into investments and savings. The government should pay more attention to the sustainability of the program because changing the behaviour and financial mindset of ex-migrant workers and families could not run instantly. Ex-migrant workers and families were community groups with low levels of education, mentality, motivation, income, and social status.
