Our partner is a social enterprise designed to create financial access, improve business skills and financial literacy for small businesses in Tanzania.  
 
To date, our partner has been able to maintain around 265 new jobs since 2003. It projects that with its additional financing, it could create between 6,000-8,000 new jobs.
 
Since 2003 our partner has successfully provided loans to over 80 businesses, enabling them to grow in order to better provide for their families and develop the local economy.
 
With new financing received in the summer of 2012, our partner is now embarking on an
ambitious growth plan. As a result, it is looking for a volunteer to assist with the following:
  • External reporting requirements
  • Refine its internal controls and accounting systems
  • Develop a financial management program for its customers
  • Train local accountants in proper accounting practise, bookkeeping and internal controls
 
Volunteer Criteria 
  • 3-4 years of experience in accounting with experience with internal controls and reporting
  • Previous experience (either travel or volunteer assignments) in a developing country a plus
  • Chartered Accountant/ Certified Public Accountant
 
Benefits
Our partner will organize safe, comfortable accommodation (and contribute to 50%) within a short distance of its offices in Moshi. A stipend will be provided to support the volunteer with living costs. In addition, you will receive visas, local travel and medical insurance. Our partner will provide an initiation day to get to know Moshi and the surrounding area, where to shop, purchase a mobile phone, etc. In addition airport transfer will be arranged.
