The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German federal enterprise. GIZ supports the Federal German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries around the globe. In Malawi, GIZ has been working for more than 50 years. The German international cooperation currently focuses on three priority areas: education, health and private sector development in rural areas. In addition, to our work on these areas, we also work on public financial management and economic management.
GIZ is recruiting Administrative Project Assistant in agricultural finance, agriculture and business promotion for the Promotion of agricultural finance project based in Lilongwe.
The project “Promotion of agricultural finance for agri-based enterprises in rural areas in Malawi” is part of a global project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The objective of the project is to improve the access of farms and agri-based enterprises in rural areas to financial services that are adapted to their business models.
More specifically, the project supports farmers and agri-based enterprises in identifying economically viable business models, improving their financial skills and thus strengthening their capacities to take decisions on financing, investments and the use of financial services. At the same time, the project accompanies selected financial institutions in expanding and adapting their financial services to the specific requirements of the agricultural sector.
The project focuses on the following regions: Chitipa, Karonga, Nkhata Bay and Mzimba in the North; Kasungu, Nkhotakota and Salima in the Central region; and Chiradzulu, Thyolo and Mulanje in the South. The project office is based in Lilongwe.
