What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

I work for an NGO called Association de Service Financier (ASF).

Short Description Of Project

Our organization acts as a creditor in rural areas where banks and other forms of credit are not available. We offer credit to individuals as well as community groups and provide each client with a repayment plan. By providing an avenue to obtain credit, we give rural citizens the opportunity to overcome the biggest hurdle for entrepreneurial activities: financing.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

As record keeping and calculations represent the bulk of our work, a computer would be an invaluable resource to us. We currently keep hand written records and perform all calculations with a simple calculator. With a computer we could easily update our financial records after every client transaction. By using a spreadsheet program we would be able to create a client database and perform calculations much more quickly and accurately when opening and closing accounts. We would also be able to generate financial reports much more easily.

What Languages do you speak?
