About MicroLoan Foundation

MicroLoan Foundation supports the poorest women in remote rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa to work their own way out of poverty. By providing them with financial literacy, business training, on-going support and small affordable loans, we help these women to start small businesses for themselves.

 

With a regular income they are able to provide the basics for their families – food, shelter, education and medicine. We teach them to save as insurance against future crop failure, illness and other unexpected emergencies. In short, we give them hope, not handouts. Since 2002 MicroLoan Foundation has supported over 324,000 women and their families in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

 

The role

MicroLoan Foundation is looking for a proactive, ambitious and highly organised Fundraising & Events Officer to join our fundraising team in London. The central function of the role is to manage and grow fundraising income from an innovative and exciting programme of events including in-person and digital events as well as UK and overseas challenges. The Fundraising & Events Officer will be engaging with donors, sponsors, fundraisers, and volunteers to maximise income and ensure all events run smoothly. You will manage suppliers and supporters to ensure that all events are delivered within an agreed budget and feed into the overall fundraising strategy.
