The Universities of Cape Coast and Development Studies, in collaboration with other stakeholders have begun a formalized microfinance training and services programme housed in an academic institution. The first in the country and in the West Africa sub Region, this training and services programme seeks to meet the needs of the microfinance industry for human capital development. Expertise for facilitation is from both within the universities and practitioner.
The main objective of the proposed programme is to institutionalize teaching, research and outreach in microfinance at the University of Cape Coast.
The specific objectives for the establishment of the programme are to:
- Strengthen the human capacity of MF institutions
- Promote research to identify innovative and sustainable products that enhance micro financing
- Contribute to the development of microfinance as one of the strategies for poverty reduction
- Provide avenues for interaction between academia and practitioners in micro enterprises
The mode of delivery will focus on the review of case studies through active participants’ involvement.
The target population will be professionals working in the microfinance industry.
The aim is to explore the academic content of microfinance and utilize private-public partnership paradigm for human capacity development to enhance the use of microfinance as a tool for wealth creation.
