Market Queens get training on effective bookkeeping

Management of Star Micro has embarked on a training of over 60 Market Queens and Market Leaders on “Bookkeeping and Working Capital Management” at the Cleaver House in Accra.

The event, which was part of the insurance company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), was done in partnership with the organizers of Market Women’s Day Celebration (MWDC).

The day was also used to launch the Second edition of the MWDC, which was graced by Deputy Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mrs. Elizabeth Sackey, and the Executive Director of Star Micro, Mr Kwame Asare Boakye.

The first and second workshops were done in the latter part of last year at the British Council and the Institute of Local Government Studies, Ogbojo-Madina respectively.

Head of Finance and Administration, Mr Seth Twumasi, took time to take the participants through the various stages of bookkeeping their business transactions and effectively managing their capital.

The Management of Star Micro plans to replicate same in other Regional and District capitals like Takoradi, Kumasi, Koforidua, Techiman, Tamale, among others.

Star Microfinance sees these training workshops as its contribution to society and also as a complement of Government’s effort to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 1 & 3, which is to ‘Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger’ and ‘Promote Gender Equality and Empowerment”.

Topics for the training workshop include The Changing Scenes of Life and the Need to Prepare for Such Changes; The Impact of Market Women on the Economy, Managing Business as Companies and Entrepreneurship and Customer Relationship Management.

The training workshops have been very much appreciated by the Market Queens and Leaders and they have asked that the various groups under them be given same training.
