Our partner, based in rural Kenya, is an innovative non-profit currently working to alleviate poverty through microloans, business training and health promotion.

Our partner loans $350 to homes which has helped over 500 households establish microenterprises to lift themselves, and their families, out of poverty. In addition, it focuses on disease prevention and health promotion through community outreach, health education, mosquito net distribution, and clinical services in schools and homes.

It has had a bit of a staffing reshuffle in the past few weeks which has left the finance department under resourced. There is now a medium-term plan to move a member of the public health team into the finance department. They are looking for a volunteer to fill in the gap whilst this transition takes place.  Your role will include:

 

  • Implementing new loan accounting procedures (currently in one loan account when it should be split by group)
  • Business training for loan groups who finish their second loan (they must seek bank financing after that)
  • Overseeing the reconciliation of all loan accounts (not reconciled at present)
  • Reviewing the monthly board pack content
  • Reviewing the petty cash controls
  • Full re-implementation of Quickbooks
  • Staff training in MS Office and Quickbooks
  • Compiling a donor reporting package suitable for corporate entities

 

Ideally a volunteer will be available for from February for at least a month.
