Taking Savings Groups on the Road Webinar Series: PSP Implementation Manual
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 will feature the handbook's main author, marc bavois, as he walks us through the manual, highlighting both the successes and challenges of scaling up the model.
Taking Savings Groups on the Road is a collaborative effort between the Carsey Institute, the SEEP Network and Oxfam America to revive some of the informative and dynamic discussions from the SG2013 Conference and delve into new topics at the forefront of savings groups.
