INTRODUCTION

This course is designed to help manage social enterprise finances for efficiency and sustainability. It seeks therefore to help launching and developing social entrepreneurship, especially those in rural developing countries.

In this course, you will develop your ability to read and analyze financial documents in the context of social entrepreneurships and micro and small business opportunities. The aim is to enable you to identify pathways towards efficient outcomes and achieving sustainability of your social enterprise. Critical thinking approaches will be explored to help you making financial decisions which favourably affect your entreprise. 

Financial resourcefulness and self-reliance among NGOs and Community-Based Organisations (CBOs) are part of today’s development initiatives and include start-up financing for social enterprises. Complementary to social entrpreneurship, some development initiatives include funds for micro-finance projects designed for successful NGOs and entrepreneurial CBOs, encompassing family, micro and small businesses. Financial management concepts for such initiatives are part of the course programme.  

Development providers also need expertise in financial management of social entrepreneurship and CBOs, as well as for micro and small business endeavours, if they support such initiatives. While this goes beyond traditional ways of development assistance for basic community welfare, the growth of social enterprises and interlinked micro and small business initiatives brings along a big potential for sustainability and growth.   

The course can be offered as in-person or online. In online training, the trainer maintains the same level of interaction as in an in-person course. Personalized post-course support is available for a period of six months after the course

Participants who successfully complete the course will receive Certificate of Participation.
