Fundraising Assistant – Volunteer opportunity

The charity:

MicroLoan Foundation (MLF) helps some of the poorest women in the world feed their families, send their children to school and pay for life saving medicines.  We are a very different kind of charity, offering hope, not handouts. By providing small loans (on average £60) and ongoing business training and support, MLF empowers women in rural Malawi and Zambia to set up self-sustainable businesses.  The profits from these businesses enable the women to work themselves and their families out of poverty.  The charity has significant plans for growth in both existing and new countries.

MLF has pioneered an innovative and sustainable microfinance model suited to remote rural areas and for people most in need in the community.  The organisation enables women to work their way out of poverty by providing opportunities to develop lifelong skills, access vital financial services and establish sustainable small businesses.  Crucially, MLF works at the grassroots, with people who are usually ignored by other organisations in this sector because of their needs or location.

The opportunity – role purpose:

This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated self-starter to obtain or develop their research skills and play a crucial role in the fundraising team by identifying prospective donors and assisting with funding applications.  The role is offered on a voluntary basis for up to three days a week in the charity’s office in Brentford, TW8 8JA.  We will reimburse travel expenses.
