Finance, Business Development Services Component Training Needs Assessment
Chemonics International (USAID)
Making Cents conducted a training needs assessment and subsequently designed a three-year training plan for the agriculture sector in Mali. Included in the training plan were activities aimed at strengthening the business and financial management capabilities of businesses and organizations active in the agriculture sector in Mali as well as the financial institutions and consulting firms that may serve them. Our subsequent technical assistance upgraded the skills of service providers, offering a course to Malian Business Service Providers on how to “Run a Stronger Consulting Firm” and developing a standardized tool for presenting business financials and providing training on this tool to financial institutions and business consultants.
