Social Enterprise promoting quality early childhood care [586]

Flights covered. Accommodation or Stipend provided

Nairobi, Kenya

1-2 months

Our partner works with small day-care businesses servicing marginalised and low-income families in Nairobi, and aims to install an environment that is safe and affordable. They require support in effectively managing their microloan system.

You will begin with a review of their accounting systems, procedures and controls, making recommendations for best practice, taking into account the capacity and resources of the team. They recently received the support of a pro bono consultant who focused on operational systems and strategy. He spent a couple of days installing a simple finance management system but this was not his area of expertise and you will be required to review and further develop this work.

Our partner have recently engaged the services of a local consultant to build their microloans platform. You will be reviewing this new platform and helping to ensure they have a user friendly system with a clear reporting dashboard, you will provide training on what data to collect and how to use this to inform decisions, analysis and planning. Your work will also feed into the new app which is currently being developed to include a customer facing system.

Alongside installing a simple financial management system for integrating, managing and forecasting their work according to the various grants they are managing, you will also be helping create a system to integrate and account for other non-grant revenue streams eg. from loans and other payments.
