The Director General of Small and Medium size Enterprises Promotion Agency, Badga Jean Marie Louis says software financial management is necessary for the growth of small scale businesses. He was speaking yesterday 7th September 2015 in Yaounde during an opening ceremony of a two week refresher course organised at the National Advanced School of Technical Engineering -Polytech.
The refresher course targetted close to 30 student engineers who are presently being drilled on software finacial management and online marketing after which they will be issued certificates. These students shall be expected to serve as facilitators on financial software and online marketing to 100 small scale business firms during an upcoming workshop. During the ceremony, it was revealed that among the over 100,000 small and medium size businesses in Cameroon, just 25% is advanced in computer technology.
It is as a result of this that Mr. Badga Jean Marie Louis saw the need for small scale businesses in Cameroon to be schooled on software financial management and online marketing.These selected business firms according to the Director General is just a sample to the thousand small scale businesses that are yet to be trained. The training according to him can help expand small scale business in the country if the knowledge is utilised.
