Chief of Party, Laos
ACDI/VOCA is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) for an anticipated five-year, $10-25 million USAID-funded enterprise development project in Laos. The Microenterprise activity will provide support to microenterprises, including those in the agricultural sector to access economic opportunity. The activities might include support to microfinance institutions to improve access to financial services that are tailored to the needs of microenterprises; reduce regulatory, policy, and barriers that limited growth opportunities for microenterprises; build capacity to microenterprises to improve quality, productivity and market potential as well as increase access to new markets. The Chief of Party should have proven experience leading project teams and implementing integrated programs that address inclusive business solutions to sustainable economic growth, enhancing private sector growth through small and medium enterprises (SMEs), expanding investment opportunities, and enhancing financial services for small business owners. This project is funded by USAID and is envisioned to start in 2018.
