Finances for Mortals is a financial education project promoted at the University of A Coruña by the UDC Social Council and the UCEIF Foundation, through the Santander Financial Institute (SANFI). This project also has the support and sponsorship of Banco Santander, whose professionals provide the Finances for Mortals training on a voluntary basis throughout Spain.
