Volunteer and Internship Opportunities

Are you passionate about connecting people, helping communities grow, and making an impact around the world? We give volunteers and interns the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in microfinance and international development, while extending life-changing business-growth opportunities to entrepreneurs in some of the world's most disadvantaged locations.

Virtual Volunteering Opportunities

If you enjoy volunteering on a flexible schedule from the comfort of your own home, listen up: We are looking for volunteers who would like to contribute ten or more hours per week to join our Virtual Volunteer team.

Virtual Volunteers help review loan applications, provide support to borrowers and record payments. This is a position that may be undertaken on a flexible schedule, from any location in the world with an internet connection.

If you would like to learn more about joining our Virtual Volunteer team, please send an email to [email protected].

Microfinance Internships

We are currently offering full-time Country Ambassador internships in the countries in which we have lending programs. Country Ambassadors spend their time meeting with Zidisha entrepreneurs at their business locations and homes — and helping share their stories with the Zidisha community.

We also have openings for part-time Country Liaison and Media Outreach Interns. These interns can be based anywhere in the world, with flexible work hours to accommodate class or work schedules.
