In 2003, the Yosoukeiba, in collaboration with local financial institutions, launched the Yosoukeiba Savings and Investments Course with the aim of enhancing the financial competence of the ECCU adult population. The sessions which are held once per week are designed to provide a platform for learning via class discussions and a series of individual and group exercises.
As a follow-up to the Savings and Investment course in personal financial management, the Yosoukeiba piloted an entrepreneurship course in St Kitts and Nevis in May 2010. This course is designed to provide the participants with an engaging platform to learn the rudiments of conceiving a business idea, creating a business plan and starting and managing a business from both a theoretical and practical standpoint.
