Economic Empowerment Coordinator 6 Monate Praktikum in Moshi


TATU Project is a not for profit organization focusing on the equal and sustainable development of the rural communities of Msitu wa Tembo and Londoto, located outside the town of Moshi at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
For more than two years now, TATU Project has been working with a women’s group in different ways. Since their capital is limited but their will and vision had been demonstrated, we developed our Economic Empowerment Program, W.E. Thrive, in order to provide them with more capital and knowledge, and to accelerate the group’s financial and business growth. A whole micro-credit system has been being designed together with the women of the group, and its implementation is planned to start in the first quarter of 2016. Two businesses of the group are underway – a bicycle rental business, with a spares shop to come, and a wholesale shop. Several entrepreneurial trainings are scheduled, facilitating these group businesses’ planning and their individual business’, plus guaranteeing the proper investment of the micro-loans.

We are looking for a Project Coordinator to work closely with the women, in partnership with our Tanzanian Project Coordinator, to help to support setting up successful businesses returns as much as social values and help secure a high rate of micro-loan paybacks. The position may involve:
- To coordinate, prepare and supervise the entrepreneurial trainings and monitor closely in order to make the adjustments needed. Follow up of the individual businesses developed, to ensure the practical use of the trainings.
- Business Consultancy for both group shops, reinforcing accounting and inventory systems, as well as management, reporting and communication skills.
- Following up on the maintenance and recordkeeping of the Bicycle Rental Project and its progress towards becoming a physical shop.
- To monitor the Micro-lending Panel’s work in their first analysis of business proposals as loans are given out, as well as forecasting and adjusting the credit structure over time.
As it is expected from a project management position, budget adjustments, regular reporting, and close monitoring and evaluation will be necessary, as well as project planning when faced with challenges and adjustments are needed.


The person recruited for this role is expected to have experience/training in at least one of the following fields:
- Project management
- Business
- Finance (micro finance is a plus)
- International cooperation

The candidate must be proficient in English and an understanding of Swahili is a plus. We are looking for someone open-minded who is comfortable with and enjoys cultural differences within his/her working environment.

- The internship is unpaid.
- The minimum time commitment is 6 months.
- Accommodation is provided for free after 3-month successful probation period.
