As part of its social responsibility and continued efforts to develop the skills of Omani youth, National Finance – Oman’s leading Finance Company – conducted the first workshop of “Calculate it Right” programme in collaboration with the Fund for Development of Youth Projects, “Sharakah”. The workshop took place in National Finance’s main office in Muscat and it comes under the company’s independent wing for sustainable initiatives – ‘Imtidad’.

The initiative targets existing and potential entrepreneurs, and aims to equip business owners with the necessary skills set in financial management and resource planning. The workshop shed light on the basics of determining the required capital for projects, the mechanism for calculating sales projections, the availability of the required resources, factors affecting sales, calculating operating expenses, and others related fields.
