The training guides included here will enable training managers and staff of recognised training organisations to deliver short courses on topics of particular importance to the development of rural finance.
Each topic, for which a guide is provided, has a set of session notes outlining the objectives of each session and providing handouts, exercises, answers and guidelines for trainers to follow. The material can be used exactly as provided or simply used to enhance existing courses by providing new material for trainers to adapt to their own circumstances.
It is hoped the material will be found useful at all levels from postgraduate students to new recruits for banks or NGOs, as well as trainers themselves, senior people such as bank chairmen, policy makers and donor staff. All session notes will include references to materials featured in the resources section of the Rural Finance Learning Centre and may include case studies, visual aids and documents providing theoretical background.
