Gaming for Good - Using Simulation to Help Micro-entrepreneurs Get Financing
Join Katrin Schwabe, Senior Director of BTS for an introduction and Q&A session.
BTS, a global professional services firm headquartered in Sweden, has designed a simulation to help micro-entrepreneurs gain business acumen and develop essential financial skills. They have worked closely with the German-based Savings Banks Foundation for International Cooperation (SBFIC) and local partners to roll out the Micro Business Game to 25,000 micro-entrepreneurs in 12 countries including Ghana, Mexico, Philippines, Uzbekistan and Zambia. This training is intended to equip entrepreneurs - particularly women and youth - with the skills to walk into a bank and get credit for their business.
