Description:  This training will provide a comprehensive overview of CRS's proven Private Service Provider (fee-for-service) model for cost-effective scaling up of savings groups. It includes both the rationale and benefits; as well as the implementation timeline, process and tools; and keys to success. The training will be participatory, with hands-on activities. All participants will receive a copy of the PSP Implementation Manual. 

In addition to this 1-day intro course a full, five-day course will be offered in November in Rwanda, in conjunction with the Carsey School of Public Policy for those that want to adopt this methodology. A discount of $300 will offered to those who attend the SEEP training and also register for the SMDP Rwanda course. Visit this link for more details.


Space is limited to 30 participants in each training, so register now. 

Target Audience: Savings group and other microfinance practitioners interested in learning about a practical approach to fee-for-service group formation.
