Senior Technical Agricultural Finance Manager

Here’s where you come in:
As the Senior Technical Agricultural Finance Manager, you will provide technical support to agricultural finance provided by our Microfinance Institution (MFI) network. The position is a grant funded position and will primarily focus on 10 countries, but will also be able to provide support to the rest of the network. To date much of VFIs agricultural finance has been simple “vanilla finance” and balloon loan as being often the only distinguishing component.
You will provide more hands-on technical support in the assessment, design, pilot and roll out of new agricultural products that will allow VF MFIs to finance farmers that World Vision is facilitating through its local value chain work (LVCD) and as savings groups (S4T) continue to grow with the support of FAST. Additionally, as climate change increasingly impacts our rural clients, you will look to expand both our capacity and profile in developing climate appropriate products and services. You will also bring together all our learnings and practices to enable VFI to more competitively compete for grants and position us as more of a leader in the agricultural finance space

Requirements include:
• Postgraduate level degree in Agricultural Economics or relevant agricultural degree
• 10 years + working in agricultural finance field in Africa either for Banks, MFIs, Finance companies or NGOs
• At least 5 years of this must be in providing financial services to farmers and not just in an advisory/ consulting manner
• Experience across a range of countries (not limited to one or two places)
• Experience of Value chain finance or finance to agricultural cooperatives
• Experience of working with international organisations on projects (E.g World Bank, IFAD, FAO)
• Demonstrated experience of working on and or designing programs with a climate change component (e. FMNR)

Work Hours: 8

Experience in Months: 120

Level of Education:
Postgraduate Degree
