Training day:

Aside from saving, other basic financial knowledge, such as the reason for charging interest on loans, was lacking. We attempted to teach the clients basic knowledge such as business planning, customer service and sanitation at a compulsory training day we held. The clients who came asked many questions and we were able to clarify a number of concepts.

Staff training:

The last few days concentrated on staff training. It is very important to constantly upskill the staff, so that they are better able to pass their knowledge onto the clients.

Overall success:

Overall we felt that SEAM is definitely having a positive effect on the lives of the clients in a number of ways. It is often allowing them to send their children to school, and it is educating them on business practices that will allow them to pull themselves out of poverty. The clients wholeheartedly thanked their New Zealand

The clients wholeheartedly thanked their New Zealand sponsors, and wanted us to pass this on to all those involved in SEAM.
