This is a tool for facilitators of the Farmers' Life School (FLS) who have graduated from a Farmers' Field School and a Farmers' Life School (FLS), by adult educators or NGOs and community-based organizations with experience in participatory learning and people interested in introducing the Farmers' Life School (FLS) course into their own programmes. The Farmers' Life School can be used in either community-based programmes or it can be adapted for formal educational settings. The website is dedicated to providing access to the best materials for capacity building in the field of rural finance. Rural finance is about providing financial services such as deposit and money transfer facilities, insurance and loan products, for people living in rural areas. Finding ways to increase the availability of appropriate financial services in rural areas is a challenge. Perceptions of high costs and high risk divert banks from operating in rural areas and micro finance institutions face difficulties dealing with highly seasonal farm incomes, uneven demands for credit and a dispersed clientele. To assist organisations seeking ways to increase the availability of rural financial services, the Rural Finance Learning Centre contains a database of resources organised into topics, online self study lessons and session guides for training programmes.
