The SRFP training sessions are intended for existing MSMEs that wish to advance and perfect their business knowledge. The training will look to advance business acumen in the fields of business plan development, applying for a loan, financial planning, market development amongst other disciplines.

All trainings have a practical approach to learning, presenting through case studies, and exercises. Ultimately, the goal is to develop the business skills of MSME owners through targeting problems in their operations.

The SRFP trainers are international, regional, and local professionals who have extensive experience in the training subjects and will be able to relate first-hand and provide specialised advice to those attending. Trainings will be held in classrooms and in online forums.
