ABADE conducted a second round of training course on QuickBooks for over 15 Afghan businesses in Mazari Sharif from August 23 to 31, 2015. The training took seven days and aimed to improve financial management and accounting practices. Currently, many SMEs utilize Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and other Office software to record transactions, inventories assets and create balance sheets. Such practices prevent the businesses from being able to record and analyze data quickly and effectively. After the training, ABADE will provide support for on-site implementation and customization of the software, based on familiarity with the software, participation in the training and interest by business owners and managers.
