ToT on recording farm cash flows

Over 180 employees drawn from 97 Primary Cooperatives under 10 Farmers Cooperative Unions in Northwest Ethiopia were trained as trainers in recording farm cash flows and calculating cost-benefit analysis. The training sessions were organised for two days in mid-May 2018 at Sanja, Metema, Jawi, Humera, and Sheraro.

The training sessions were organised separating the old and the new trainees. While the new trainees were trained in detail a kind of refreshment training was given to the trainees who took the same training and trained their farmer members last year. For the later ones, emphases were given to the points which were difficult for them last year.
