Job Title: Sales & Marketing Intern

Location: Jinja and surrounding districts
Number of Hours: 9 hours a day, 5 days a week

About Numida:
Numida uses proprietary credit models and tech-enabled underwriting processes to provide unsecured working capital loans to African micro and small businesses. Instead of borrowing from informal lenders or family, business owners download the Numida app, apply in minutes, and receive capital within a day. With 20 million businesses in Africa representing a $5 billion market opportunity, traditional microfinance is failing them. Numida has figured out how to score and disburse unsecured loans to cash-based businesses with no digital transaction history, achieving excellent collection rates. Within 10 years, Numida anticipates enabling at least 1 million small business owners on the continent to achieve their dreams. Numida is Uganda’s first YC-backed startup and is also backed by world-class investors such as Serena Ventures, Onafriq, Breega, and 4Di Capital.
