NGO providing mobile platforms to obtain affordable Nano Loans

Accommodation provided

Yangon, Myanmar

1-2 months

Our partner has created a mobile platform that enables poor families to obtain affordable Nano Loans via their phones. Its nano loans help the economically vulnerable bridge income gaps and are small, flexible and short-term at a fraction of the cost of alternate moneylenders.

They are seeking the support of a volunteer in supporting them in the research, development and implementation of a new product.

Our partner have two separate needs; depending on the profile of the candidate, both of them can be combined into one longer placement.

  1. They are seeking the support of a finance professional to undertake a review of their strategy and operations, identify key risks, and support them in devising an action plan with milestones, based on the priority of these risks.
  2. The second piece is more project-based, and will focus on supporting them in the research, development and implementation of a new pay-by-instalment product.

This role will require a lot of initiative and business acumen, and the willingness of the volunteer to work in an environment that is still evolving. As part of this, you may also be required to assess what (if any) changes to the accounting & financial management system might be required to accommodate to ensure that the new product line can be properly incorporated and accounted for.
