The material in this guide is drawn from the ideas presented at a workshop held in Mwanza, Tanzania in December 1993. The participants were members of Youth Economic Groups and Women's Economic Groups supported by Oxfam. The workshop was held to discuss the financial management of revolving loan funds.
I would like to thank John Cammack, Hugh Belshaw, Ros Avery, Susan Ralphs, Ceri Sullivan, and Akm Golam Morshed, who read the manuscript and made helpful suggestions.
