The Commons is a shared resource database curated by CoFED staff and contributed to by students from the CoFED network. It offers us the base of resources that we work with, from examples of policies and procedures to business plan templates and financial bookkeeping best practices. If you would like to contribute to The Commons or use some of the amazing resources, get in touch with CoFED Field Staff Anna@CoFED.org or Yahya@CoFED.org.
