"Management of Credit Schemes for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa: A Training Manual" arises out of over seven years' experience of training and capacity building in the management of credit schemes for women entrepreneurs. Micro-enterprises offer an attractive channel for innovations in investment, especially in the rural and peri-urban areas where the majority of the population lives and which mainstream investors shy away from. Although the focus of the publication is on women entrepreneurs in Africa, the experience contained in the manual derives from a synthesis and an adaptation of experiences in Africa, Asia and other areas of the developing world. "Management of Credit Schemes for Women Entrepreneurs in Africa: A Training Manual" will be a useful tool in capacity building through training in initiatives for part-realisation of the Millennium Development Goals. Both the beginner and the professional will find this book a much-cherished addition to their catalogue of pedagogic tools for entrepreneurs - in Africa in particular, and the developing world in general.
