The charity:

We are currently working with a charity which provides rickshaw drivers and cart operators with the means to self-employment by enabling them to buy, rather than rent, their rickshaws.

This bottom-up pricing model allows them to recycle capital to new customers and fund expansion over time. Advertising space on the rickshaws is also sold to supplement repayment income. A critical part of their consumer offering is the vocational support they provide. This includes the provision of legal licenses—something drivers cannot legally access as daily renters – insurance, uniforms, photo identity cards, and access to no frills banking. These services significantly enhance quality of life for the rickshaw drivers/cart operators, and they also improve the charity’s competitive position, and reduce repayment risk.

The role:

They currently have very capable finance staff. They would like the support of an experienced accountant to evaluate their existing processes and controls, and reporting procedures, strengthening them and training the finance staff appropriately. Long-term, they are looking to be become more attractive to investors and they would like advice on scaling up.
