Taking Savings Groups on the Road: Paid Service Provider Implementation Manual

by on Feb 19, 2014  |  posted in Savings  |  3 Comments

Taking Savings Groups on the Road: PSP Implementation Manual Webinar from SEEP Network on Vimeo.

The program scale for savings groups relies on spreading groups through low-cost avenues. Organizations, such as Catholic Relief Services (CRS), use the private service provider (PSPs) delivery channel whereby PSPs hire themselves out to train people who want to form savings groups. After years of design, field piloting, operational research and development, based on their programs in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, CRS has come out with a comprehensive and digestible module on the PSP methodology, the Paid Service Provider: Implementation Manual.

This webinar featured the handbook's main author, marc bavois, as he walked us through the manual, highlighting both the successes and challenges of scaling up the model. After discussing the manual, marc opened the floor to a variety of questions from program participants. To read a summary of the questions and answers, click here.
