Financial Literacy is a Have to for Actors
In my early encounters with both seasoned and inexperienced persons in financing for development, documenting and reporting on the outreach and communication, it turned evident that there are huge misunderstandings on each and every side of the aisle (donors-investors and recipients) … Issue to sub -Saharan Africa, and to a bigger extent assorted aspects on this planet, when expectations are now not communicated, roles left to assumption, this might per chance occasionally jeopardize the “relationship” in this kind of framework.
