The veteran accountant recalled that business is basically engaging in buying and selling in stocks in the international markets, saying he has been doing this for the last two years.

The three-month training, he said, covers both theory and practical and the first batch are now in their second month: “We would be taking the second batch very soon.”
“We train people to know the market, using the soft ware and all you need is to be computer literate. Once you are computer literate, you could be train to become a stock.”
The objective of institution, he added, is to help harness the potentials of young Gambians who actually need to become traders in future.
