Description du stage : The purpose of CCA's project with MUSCCO is to introduce a new Credit Union software package into 16 SACCOs and MUSCCO. The project will provide funds for the software and technical support to MUSCCO to install the software and provide training and service support. Each individual participating SACCO will purchase the computers and printers and designate a person responsible to lead and maintain the computerization process. The project also pays salaries and relayed costs for 2 auditors. This project was started in 2005.

In Canada the intern will attend a pre-departure orientation.

Overseas
The project requires an intern at the research stage to assist in developing and refining tools to use for data gathering and analysis. The intern would be developing the tools in the area of savings and credit co-operatives. By using participatory methodologies and skills in appreciative inquiry the intern will assist in establishing baseline information which will inform the future direction of the program. Knowledge in community participation and an understanding of cooperatives or member based business enterprises would be essential.
