Volunteer Opportunity description

Do you have a passion for advancing opportunities for highly motivated people in the world's poorest communities? Do you enjoy volunteering on a flexible schedule from the comfort of your own home?

Zidisha Microfinance launched in 2009 as the world's first true person-to-person microlending platform, based on direct communication and transactions between lenders worldwide and borrowers in developing countries.

We currently have openings for English- and French-speaking volunteers to contribute one to ten hours per week to join our Loan Profile Review team. The Loan Profile Review Team is responsible for working with applicants to improve the quality of their profiles, so that each person's uniqueness shines through in a way lenders can appreciate. Loan Profile Review Volunteers review applications posted on our website, do light editing of project titles for clarity, and send feedback and suggestions for improvement directly to the loan applicants.

This is a "virtual volunteering" position that may be undertaken from any location in the world, at the times that most suit your own preference and schedule.
