About the job

Terms of reference: Finance & Operations Manager


Working with the Government of Nepal’s Koshi Province (GoKP), the project Udaya – Investment and Innovation for Economic Development seeks to enhance the framework conditions for SMEs in Koshi Province. Udaya is jointly funded by the Government of Nepal and Government of Switzerland and is being implemented by DAI, a global development company headquartered in Maryland, United States. Udaya directly supports enterprises’ access to pertinent business development services (BDS) in areas such as business and financial management, accounting or marketing, and to provide interested SMEs with vouchers to avail of loan application. Further, as existing service offered by BDS providers and banks in Koshi Province are not geared towards SMEs, the project will support the GoKP in establishing a technical assistance facility for improving BDS offers and strengthening SME-lending. Similarly, as banks are reluctant to lend to SMEs (owing to the allegedly high probability of loan default), the project will support the GoKP in establishing a risk-reduction mechanism for selected banks and financial institutions, possibly in the form of a guarantee fund. Finally, the project will support the GoKP in establishing an easy-to-use and interactive digital information portal, which will act as a repository of all business-relevant information for SMEs.
