Job Description

Export Development Fund (EDF) is a development finance institution (DFI) mandated to promote the growth as well as diversification of the country’s exports. EDF’s mission is to accelerate structural transformation in Malawi through various financial and non-financial interventions availed to businesses in growth sectors of the economy. EDF also plays a leading role in job creation by investing in ambitious projects and initiatives with the aim of enhancing the competitiveness of Malawi’s exports

By taking on strategic investments that may fall outside the risk acceptance criteria for commercial banks, the additionality of EDF’s interventions is more pronounced as EDF is able to reach out to enterprises that are in dire need of financing as recently demonstrated by the rapid disbursements under the COVID-19 Trade Impact Mitigation Facility (COTIFA) which extended loans and advances in the amount equivalent to US$ 20 million
