PURPOSE OF POSITION:

VisionFund executes its role within the Livelihoods ministry by lending small amounts of money to microentrepreneur clients of its MicroFinance Institutions (MFIs) in developing countries, and today reaches over 1 million clients with over 3 million children through a global loan portfolio of over $400m and operations in 28 countries. The VisionFund business model is successful in its impact and outreach because of its access to debt capital (through ‘Capital Markets’ in developed countries) to leverage donor capital. Today VisionFund borrows c.$250m at the Global Centre (GC) and MFI levels, roughly enabling twice the volume of child impact, due to its global Capital Markets function and key lender

relationships.

VisionFund International (VFI) is embarking on a new 2030 Strategy cascaded from Our Promise, which will include both strong loan portfolio growth of roughly 15% per year and strong innovation (to ensure long-term business model relevance). Achieving success in this strategy will be critically dependent on VFI’s ability to access a broad range of Capital Market funding sources within microfinance and in innovative new areas, beyond also growing and cultivating those that it currently taps. To ensure its funding and scaling success, VisionFund is seeking to combine two senior positions in the area (Director of Global Funding (vacant) + Capital Markets Director (Isabelle Nowak)), and add a critical new element to the position (Innovation Finance) as well as to elevate the position in leadership profile by potentially including the position in senior management decision making bodies (CEO to determine), reporting directly to the Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
