Non-profit supporting smallholders farmers

Visa covered

Nairobi, Kenya

2-4 weeks minimum

Our partner is an agribusiness using technology and innovation to support smallholder farmers in Kenya. They challenge poor productivity and fragmented value chains by connecting famers to technical support, market contract and farm inputs.

You will begin with an internal review of their financial systems, procedures and controls, making recommendations for best practice. Our partner would like to become financially sustainable. Currently they are still relying on donations. They would like your help in refining, strengthening and consolidating their accounts and system to support this.

You will also be reviewing and improving with cashflow management and cost accounting.

Our partner is rolling out a new structure this year and is introducing field office hubs where they're planning to install junior accountants. You will be helping to establish accounting procedures for this new structure, including the reporting back to head office.
