The Microcredit Summit Campaign believes that students who complete an internship with our organization should come out of it with a more nuanced understanding of the sector, particularly who are the actors, what are the challenges and exciting innovations, and how the sector is evolving to better serve the interest of the poorest. Our staff work closely with interns as part of a close-knit team, exposing them to the inner-workings of a development organization and teaching them about the various issues that concern microfinance practitioners, such as client protection, social performance, health integration, gender empowerment, etc. Additionally, interns will have unique opportunities to interact directly with major actors in microfinance as well as to attend learning events and seminars in the DC area.
The Campaign is seeking one (1) intern to support the Campaign’s communications and social media strategy with a view to strengthening member engagement and mobilizing the grassroots, as well as to assist with administrative tasks and basic research. The intern will have unique opportunities to interact directly with major actors in the international development field, particularly in the field of microfinance, as well as to attend learning events and seminars in the DC area.
