On November 6, 2023, WHAE held a financial inclusion training to its regional staff as part of its annual meeting. The training was provided by Dagmawit Shiferaw, Chair of WHAE Board and Director of Investment Lab at UNDP.
The presentation focused on personal and organizational vision, personal and organizational plan development and cash flow management which was followed by a lively discussion.
The objective of the training was to raise regional staff members’ knowledge of WHAE’s commitment to financial inclusion, facilitate local unit women’s participation in the financial market through collateral-free loan, and improve their digital and financial literacy.
Staff members from Telebirr, COOP (Michu, etc.), and CBE Birr also gave presentations on the concept of digital lending, borrowing options, the procedures, and possible collaborations with the institutions.
WHAE would like to express its gratitude to the staff members of Telebirr, COOP, and CBE Birr for their enlightening presentations on the principles of digital lending and on how to obtain them. WHAE would also like to thank Dagmawit Shiferaw for her informative and engaging presentation, WHAE Board, regional and Head Office members for attending the training and for their active participation.
