Consultant: youth micro-finance project (Uganda)

War Child
London, UK
Consultant (Short term)

KATI is a ground-breaking, award winning youth entrepreneurship initiative based in northern Uganda. 

It was piloted in Acholi region (Northern Uganda) by War Child UK with funding from Forward Foundation from October 2012. In a departure from traditional livelihoods projects in the area, it has provided a unique package of business training, mentoring and access to competitive loans for young entrepreneurs. War Child established KATI in Uganda in 2015 as a forward thinking effort to leave some legacy after several years working in the country.

As KATI is starting a new Strategic period and the support from War Child UK is diversifying and specializing, War Child UK is looking for a Microfinance expert based in London that will: 

- Provide micro-finance training to the relevant Departments at War Child UK; 

- Help develop a thorough understanding of KATI’s work, business plans and strategies to inform future investments, prioritization of tasks and critical decisions;

 - Determine what information War Child needs from KATI and in what format to analyse the timeframe for KATI to achieve the goal of financial and operational independence; 

- Mentor the key team members in the implementation of their tasks and the general support to KATI.
