Training seminars for small-business owners

Dear Clifford
I have just contributed to your loan.
I see that you are offering business education. You might consider using – free of charge – my website,
iniPax offers many things, all of which you are free to use. The things that I think would be the most immediately useful are the book-keeping system (Cash Book) and the teaching materials (Outback Accounting).
I have built the system over many years and have used it for Village Entrepreneurs, not unlike those I see on Zidisha, in Cambodia and India. The book-keeping system is very simple but has proven a very effective introduction to financial management. The teaching material has proven equally effective in introducing the principles of business finance.
Although it is free for you to use, I hope you find a way of making money for yourself by using it to advise others. The book-keeping service can be set up for multiple businesses under your own login, so you could provide accounting and advisory services for any number of businesses.
You can check it out at (remember, it's free!). Like contributing to Zidisha, this is what I do.
Kind regards
Barry Cooper
