Internal Account Management: A Toolkit for Village Banks

Guidelines and tools for practitioners working with internal accounts

This toolkit provides guidance and practical tools for use in developing, overseeing and auditing the internal account programs of the village banks. It also includes tools that can be given to bank members who can then use them in managing their own internal accounts.

All of the materials in this toolkit assume that you are generally familiar with the fundamentals of village banking. To effectively train village bank members in internal account management, agency staff must first have an understanding and appreciation of the issues, policies and practices involved. This toolkit includes a series of lessons also targeted to agency personnel to provide training in internal account management, as well as in the use of the various tools. These same lessons can also be used to train village bank members in internal account management.
