Adapting the Material

Read through the complete set of session guides and decide what parts of it are appropriate for the particular group of women entrepreneurs whom you are to train; it is possible, although unlikely, that the complete course can be run as outlined in the guidelines without any modifications.

It is more likely that:

· only certain sessions or pans of sessions should be used
· modifications will have to be made to the sessions which will be used
· some quite new sessions will have to be included.

Go carefully through the material that you plan to use, and ensure that names, currency and other aspects are changed, particularly in the exercises, handouts and case studies. The currency used throughout the manual is Kwacha (K) because the manual was first field-tested in Zambia.

Think of locally familiar examples to illustrate the points made during the session, and make a note of them in the margin.

Remember that the best examples, exercises and case studies come from participants' own business experiences; be ready to replace the case studies and so on given in these guidelines with examples drawn from participants themselves.
