BUSINESS TRAINING AND SUPPORT: Most of our clients have very little experience of handling money or of business. We provide training and mentoring to help them gain these skills. A five day training course for all new clients covers topics such as costing, pricing, stock management, customer relations, credit control, record keeping, managing money, the importance of saving and understanding their rights and responsibilities. Methods include role plays and games so that it is accessible to women with no formal education. Ongoing mentoring is provided once the business is up and running too, via regular visits from the programme coordinator and the credit officer.
