Start-up social enterprise working with local agri-businesses

Visa covered & affordable accommodation

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

1 Month

Our partner is a start-up social enterprise that works with local agri-businesses to scale, increase quality, and access international markets. They procure team, cinnamon, and other spices and herbs from organic and fair-trade farms in Tanzania; these are then taken to a small factor in Dar es Salaam, where they are processed and packaged and sold in-country.

At present, our partner has a really simple Excel-based system recording all their receipts and payments, and a simple organisational budget which is monitored in a basic fashion on a monthly basis. They are seeking a volunteer to set up a professional accounting system and develop their financial procedures.

Our parter would like support on financial management and strategy. As a young business, they want to ensure that they have developed tools to be able to easily monitor their cashflow, and their expenditure in relation to their budgets. Moreover, they would like support in reviewing and advising them on the medium- to long-term business and financial plans for domestic and export expansion, and support them in developing a strategy for raising funds, both through grants as well as investment.
