Farmers business training
Farmers business training

Charity Centre for Children and Youth Development (CCCYD) has a partnership with the Deutsche Sparkassenstiftung for International Kooperation (DSIK) which involves the training of financial literacy to entrepreneurs. DSIK provides the financial support and the training materials while CCCYD sends their trainers in the field to conduct the trainings and also organizes the participants to be trained. The trainings being conducted by CCCYD includes the Farmers Business Simulation (FBS) and Micro Business Simulation (MBS). It was for this reason that CCCYD partnered with farmers in Serenje and three FBS trainings were organized and conducted. CCCYD is located in Solwezi and apart from financial literacy, the organization also has other activities which includes Mentorship programs, they sponsor students in colleges, they have a campaign called Good Deeds. At their head office in Solwezi, they have a school, a Poultry project and Hammer mill among other things. They work with communities in different capacities.

5.0 Training Methodology

The training was conducted for three (3) days. On the first day, the agenda of the whole training was shared with the participants. The ground rules were set and the expectations of the farmers were written, the introduction to CCCYD and DSIK was done.

Four groups were formed by assigning numbers to participants from 1 to 4. All the 1s took up Group One and the same was done for the other numbers to make 4 Groups. The groups had a fair representation of both genders as there was at least one male in every group. The participants had members who were able to read and write in each group making it easy to choose a secretary for each group. Team one was called COMESA Farm, team two was called CHASHA Farm, team 3 was called MAKULU Farm and team four was called TWENDE Farm.It was easy to assign other group members to carry out other tasks in each team such as movements on Quality of Farm and Quality of Life metrics on the board while other members were responsible for movements of the coins on the board.The participants were taken through the Board and the question and answer session followed just to ensure that the participants understood the board and everything on it sufficiently. The training layout or overview followed. The simulation for round one was also done on the first day.

Day two started with a recap of the previous day. Participants were asked to contribute during the recap of things that they learned the previous day. This was followed by an introduction to round 2 before which, a know how session was done on the 3 Financial Statements and the groups proceeded with round 2 of the simulation. The end of day 2 was marked by assigning groups with the task of researching on the know how sessions which were given to the respective group.

Day 3 started with a recap of the previous day. An introduction to round 3 followed and the groups proceeded to go through the 3rd round after which it was time for a break. After the break, know how session followed. Groups presented their assigned know how tasks which was done after lunch. These presentations were followed by the feedback session and results. After this, the training evaluation for DSIK was done. After which, certification was done. This was followed by closing remarks by the trainers and the leader of the farmers marked the end of the training.
