Capacity Building: Training and Technical Assistance

Making Cents International is taking the lead in developing state-of-the-art curricula and delivering the training to institutions currently or interested in providing or linking youth to financial services. Making Cents also offers specialized technical assistance to reinforce internal capacity of financial service providers (FSPs) and youth serving organizations (YSOs) to develop and deliver financial services, or to develop effective partnerships and linkages to expand the access of youth to appropriate financial services and supporting services.

  • An understanding of the issues particular to the youth market
  • Tools and field experience on how to conduct market research with young people
  • Strategies and tools to design, adapt, or deliver products to young people
  • Strategies for effectively creating partnerships to deliver financial services to young people
