MABS Conducts Training of Service Providers

A Training of Trainers (ToT) Workshop was conducted by the United States Agency for International Development-supported Rural Bankers Association of the Philippines-Microenterprise Access to Banking Services (RBAP-MABS) Program last October 6 at the RBAP Building, Intramuros, Manila. The ToT Workshop ensured the proper presentation and use of RBAP-MABS training materials developed and compiled by the Program in the almost 14 year history to develop the capacity of participating rural banks to expand the microfinance operations.
Ten participants from MABS Service Providers (MSP) – private consulting firms licensed to provide MABS training and technical services, were present during the workshop. MICRA Philippines, Punla sa Tao Foundation, Seed Finance Corporation, and individual consultants were represented during the activity. The ToT focused on two training courses developed by MABS: Expansion Strategy through micro-banking offices; and Delinquency and Fraud Management.
To complete their training on the course for Delinquency and Fraud Management, some of the ToT participants attended the training for rural banks held on October 12 to 15 and facilitated some of the sessions. The participants are further required to facilitate and implement one of the MABS modules with a rural bank. RBAP-MABS will certify the trainers for the training modules they are qualified to offer.
