She urged all the participants to make good use of skills acquired during the training for a positive impact on their businesses if they were to prosper.

Martha Jana, a Kaunjika business lady, expressed gratitude to the centre for organizing such training which will have a huge impact on their businesses.  

“There were many things most of the participants and I didn’t know about on how to handle finances in business, but through the training, I am confident that what we have learnt will help my business grow,” she said.

During the training, women learned how to manage their working capital, business data, creditors, financial tips and services among other aspects.

The training is part of the core mandate of the Management Development Centre in training various individuals in business, leadership, and management among others. The MDC has lined up several professional trainings, targeting business owners, managers, as well as leaders in our society.
