First Program on Rural Finance Guatemala

It is a pleasure to share with all of you the formal inauguration of the First Technical Program on Rural Finance for Inclusive Development of Guatemala. This Educational Initiative on Financial Services is being promoted by a Partner Organization of ICCO: RED FASCO in coordination or association with the Panamericana University. It is also the first effort in formal training in the field of finance for communitarian associations, NGOS, and saving cooperatives.

The organization has taken more than 1 year specially because of the need to design an appropriate curricula for rural organizations that work on ¨Finance plus¨.  

At Central America levels it is the second experience supported by ICCO. The First one was developed with the American University in Managua.  This Guatemalan Initiative is also being supported by USAID and Counterpart International.

Congratulations to Red Fasco!
