Income Generation and Money Management: Training Women as Entrepreneurs.
Based on a workshop in Gambia in 1989, this manual was developed to help Peace Corps workers to develop training techniques for teaching women to run businesses producing and selling local products and to manage money. Topics covered include the following: (1) the role of the facilitator in adult learning; (2) problems women face in controlling their finances; (3) project development and marketing; (4) quality control; and (5) numeracy and bookkeeping. Simple plans (suitable for use with illiterate persons) for workshop training sessions that can be replicated easily in village settings are offered. The plans include a topic, target group, duration, objectives, procedures, and preparation and materials. An appendix describes three women's projects. Resources include 6 references on teaching numeracy and literacy and 19 references regarding projects for women. (KC)
