- able to keep careful records of all money paid in – as contributions, fees or sale of produce, and of all money paid out – as loans, or expenses
- able to look after the group’s money wisely
- able to manage the bank account (if one is opened) and keep cash in the bank for safety
- confident in reporting back to members on the group’s finances
- able to advise the group on the best ways to use their funds.
