Senior Agriculture Financial Specialist

The Kenya Financial Sector Deepening (FSD) programme, FSD Kenya, was established in early 2005 to support the development of inclusive financial markets in Kenya. FSD understands financial inclusion as being about harnessing the power of markets to improve people’s lives. Exceptional gains have been made in expanding inclusive finance in Kenya. FSD’s strategy for the next five years seeks to contribute to the development of a financial system that increasingly delivers value for a green and inclusive digital economy while improving financial health and capability for women and micro and small enterprises. Drawing on a detailed understanding of market systems and a clear vision of the future, FSD looks to address identified systemic constraints and bring about large-scale and sustainable change.
We are looking for a Senior Agriculture Specialist to lead FSD Kenya’s Agriculture and Processing Finance project. Working with other colleagues, the Specialist Will provide technical expertise leading to the development and implementation of interventions and tasks. The Specialist will also contribute to other FSD projects related to trade, green finance and health.
Who we need
A deep understanding of the reality on the ground for agriculture and processing market actors paired with knowledge of the financial sector’s offer to this sector will be critical for this position.
