Recruitment of Programme Coordination Unit Staff

The Government of Kenya (GoK) has signed a Financial Agreement with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in December 2010 to support a six year Programme for Rural Outreach of Financial Innovations and Technologies (PROFIT). 

The overall goal of the programme is to contribute to the reduction of poverty in rural Kenya. 

Its development objective is to increase incomes of the target group as a result of improved production, productivity and marketing in the various rural enterprise sectors. 

The Programme intends to achieve this through an enhanced and systematically sustainable access to a broad range of financial services coupled with the necessary capacity building to the rural poor households. 

PROFIT has a national coverage with a focus on rural areas of Kenya. 

Special focus is given to areas with agricultural potential, areas of high poverty incidence, and the ASAL region. The Coordination Unit (PCU) is based at The National Treasury in Nairobi.

The Programme wishes to recruit suitable candidates to fill the positions of Programme Coordinator and Programme accountant.
