Build EduFinance Training Materials and conduct EduFinance Trainings for OI partner MFIs

 Opportunity International (OI) is building an EduFinance Technical Assistance Facility. This facility assists MFIs in building and expanding their portfolio focused on schools, school fees and other education related activities. An important assistance element regards training staff of partner-MFIs in acquiring, analysing and handling EduFinance clients. Together with ADG, OI have developed training materials divided in nine modules. These modules form the basis of the trainings and can obviously be adapted by the trainers according to local setting.
In 2017, OI has contracted ADG to also provide some of the actual trainings for OBUL in Uganda. Trainings in Rwanda and Zimbabwe as well as in other countries will follow.
Overall objective:

EduFinance focuses on strengthening the capacity of MFIs to fund schools and other education related activities.

Expected results for 1st implementation phase in Uganda:
• Re-developed EduFinance training manual and process for (EduFinance) field staff
• Trained about 200 field-staff (including branch managers) on attracting and handling EduFinance clients over a period of one year, including follow-up trainings
