The outcomes and conclusions of this study were obtained through a questionnaire survey in undergraduate institutes. The study examines the link between financial literacy and those demographic issues that affect student financial literacy. For the purpose of an investigation, we distributed 250 questionnaire forms to random students and collect 230 from which 140 forms filled properly. The finding shows the introduction of financial literacy at an early level for the student is necessary. There is a need to reform the institutional structures to improve the capabilities of high school students and strategies that are needed to initiate financial literacy educational growth in developing areas. Additionally, due to high ratio of unemployment, they are unable to have financial experiences that affect their financial knowledge and behavior. Increasingly in the region, they have a very little approach to grow.
