The Rural Finance Learning Centre (RFLC) is a web site hosted and managed by the rural finance specialists of the FAO. The RFLC is a website dedicated to providing access to materials for building capacity in the field of rural finance. The Centre aims to assist organisations, institutions, policy-makers, trainers and researchers who are keen to improve their own knowledge and that of others.
The learning centre contains a reference library of documents and multi-media organised into topics which can be served from various perspectives: archived conference materials, background material, policy making, Service provision, client advice, distance learning, videos and online lessons.
The RFLC is currently funded by FAO and IFAD as part of a project called "Improving Capacity Building in Rural Finance" (CABFIN). The project objective is to encourage wider access to the extensive resources which are available for capacity building and training in rural finance.
The RFLC is keen to encourage people working in the field to contribute the materials they have used and developed to the resources database and share their experiences with others. You can register as a member of the RFLC. This will enable you to suggest new materials, add details of your organisation to contacts and receive the newsletter.
