We were really pleased to receive a report from Omar Abdullay, Community Managed Microfinance & Financial Literacy Specialist based in Arua who lead the training with his team.
The report was very in-depth, looking not only at what the CBFs (Community Based Facilitators) learnt, but also how to go forward to keep improving their work with the savings groups. Briefly…
During this training, ten Community Based Facilitators, who are funded by CRESS, were equipped with practical knowledge and skills to effectively train and mentor communities on the Christian Community Based Microfinance (CCBMF) Methodology.
The overall objective of the training was to equip the Community Based Facilitators with training organization, delivery and facilitation skills as well as mentoring, digital data collection and discipleship skills.
A number of positive lessons have been learnt to improve on the performance of the Community Based Facilitators and the Christian Community Based Microfinance. The discussions during the training generated a lot of enthusiasm in the Community Based Facilitators.
Given the level of commitment demonstrated by the CBFs during the training, it is anticipated that, they will effectively apply the new skills acquired to improve on the quality of their work, hence improving both the performance and quality of the CCBMFs.
