The Program

We need volunteers to assist in the administration of one of a Micro-Credit organization. The economy of Ghana is dominated by small informal businesses. Many self-employed people just need a little bit more capital injection into their businesses to make a big difference. As a micro-credit officer you will be involved in assessing applications for small loans. You will also be involved in the tutoring some of the customers on how to keep simple records on the business transactions – and any other tasks your supervisor may assign to you. We are looking for volunteers who are good with numbers and can also work as part of the front-line staff. The successful applicant for this rewarding volunteer position must be a person who can adapt well to a different culture and is willing to learn quickly. Basic skills in bookkeeping will be an added advantage.

Accommodation and Food

Volunteers are housed in a Volunteer House managed by a caretaker. The Volunteer House has three bedrooms which has space to comfortably accommodate up to four volunteers at a time. Three meals (Breakfast, lunch and dinner) are served. The meals consist mainly of tasty local dishes but interspersed with western fare. We go the extra mile to cater to volunteers’ food preferences as much as possible.
