Abstract

The aim of the article is to highlight the educational role of money in the intervention against poverty. Many times, in fact, poverty arises from people’s incapacity to choose and make decisions, to set up priorities and manage their income and savings. The article takes inspiration from the reflection that the Caritas of FVG and the Regional Observatory on poverty of FVG have made on this issue and in particular on the experimentations of the microcredit and the economic accompanying set up by the Caritas. These experimentations recover the original relational dimension of the money and use it as an instrument for introducing the individual in need to a network of personal relationships in order to give him/her confidence again and to embark upon and proceed in an educational process to develop the individual in need abilities in making decisions and in choosing.
