Rural Development course

Introduction

This training guide has been designed for use in introductory rural and microfinance training courses. While the fundamentals of development finance and approaches in microfinance apply to rural finance, there are particular issues and characteristics that must be understood and taken into account in order to address rural, and in particular agricultural, finance. Some knowledge of market development services would also be helpful.

Course Objective:

·         Outline and evaluate different approaches to the management of land and water resources and their potential impact on rural development goals.

·         Understand the special challenges of rural areas that are traditionally associated with rural and agricultural credit directed to the poor.

·         Be familiar with several innovative models and alternate ways of offering rural finance services.
