San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz has declared April to be “Financial Literacy Month” after an action by the city council on March 31.

The mayor made the announcement in conjunction with Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Greater San Antonio.

The credit counseling service said financial literacy means knowing how to manage money, use credit effectively, build assets and make sound financial decisions.

“Becoming financially literate is imperative to building wealth, but it does not happen overnight,” said Consumer Credit Counseling President and CEO George Merkle. “The focus of our agency is to provide you with strategies that will help master your money.”
