Dear All,Please find below open position.We are trying to find the best possible
candidates to make team stronger. Mobile
Financial Services (MFS) for Female Entrepreneurs
In
partnership with a private foundation, a commercial bank, and a research team,
Mercy Corps Indonesia will implement and evaluate a two-year Mobile Financial
Services for Female Entrepreneurs and Farmers pilot project. The project aims
to identify a cost-effective and sustainable approach to promote female
entrepreneurs’/farmers’ uptake of mobile financial services, particularly
savings, as a way to increase investment in and profit from their
businesses/farms. The project is designed with a vision of bolstering financial
inclusion for Indonesian women entrepreneurs and farmers by taking advantage of
recent developments in the banking sector which have led to branchless banking
initiatives being established by several banks. Branchless banking presents a
unique opportunity for making financial services more accessible to the
unbanked and this pilot aims to investigate how the opportunity can be
capitalized to ensure female entrepreneurs and farmers benefit.  To
that effect the project will roll out a set of test interventions targeting a
commercial bank’s field agents and female entrepreneurs/farmers in selected
locations in order to learn which activities are most cost-effective in
promoting women’s uptake of mobile savings. In other words, the pilot project
aims to prove that mobile savings lead to higher investment in women’s
businesses and farming activities and to identify a business model that is cost
effective and sustainable so that it can be adopted and scaled up after the
initial pilot. The test interventions revolve around capacity building,
marketing and incentives schemes and will be implemented by Mercy Corps
Indonesia in close collaboration with a commercial bank. The pilot project will
target approximately 400 villages in two to three districts in East Java.Jakarta 1.     Training,
