Overview

CUMO Microfinance Limited is a not-for-profit rural microfinance company providing financial and non-financial services in the hard to reach areas of Malawi. The Company currently serves over 70,000 clients (mostly women) in villages across 26 districts of Malawi. CUMO is inviting applications from suitably qualified and experienced persons to fill various vacancies under an anticipated new project to be jointly implemented with Self Help Africa (SHA) under a Result Based Financing (RBF) project. The project will target the “poorer” and “poorest” income categories of Malawians as defined in the Unified Beneficiary Registry (UBR) established by The Department of Poverty Reduction and Social Protection (DPRSP) of the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development. This project is expected to reach up to 210,000 people, in Balaka, Dedza, Salima and Nkhatabay. The objective of this project is to address the affordability barrier to accessing Off Grid Solar (OGS) products and improved cook stoves (ICS) for people in ultra-poor, vulnerable settings who would otherwise not be reached by the commercial market or existing public initiatives.

 

CUMO Microfinance Limited therefore seeks to recruit talented and dynamic individuals to be part of the team that will drive the anticipated project.
