myAgro is an award-winning non-profit social enterprise based in West Africa. We have developed a mobile savings model that allows farmers to invest their own funds in high-quality seed, fertilizer, and agricultural training to increase their harvest and income by 50-100%. Our North Star is to help 1 million farmers by 2026 lift themselves out of poverty. Learn more from myAgro's founder and CEO here. We recently received a prestigious Audacious Prize to accelerate myAgro’s reach in the next 5 years. Join a winning team that is changing the lives of hardworking farmers across West Africa.
myAgro is launching it's search for the next Country Director in Mali. We’re looking for an experienced Country Director to lead a dynamic young team across Mali for myAgro’s next phase of growth. You will oversee a team of 300+ people across 1000 villages in Mali. Your role as Country Director is to build out your management team and drive towards operational excellence while improving organizational sustainability and impact per farmer.
This is not a typical Country Director role! You will have minimal administrative and fundraising responsibilities. We need leaders who love getting mud on their boots while they visit farmers’ fields and thinking strategically on how to improve execution at a scale from 100,000 farmers to 600,000 over the next 5 years. We need leaders who think coaching and team development is a core function of their role and love to see their people succeed in new & challenging ways. We need experienced professionals who will help lead myAgro’s strategy and team to greater heights of impact and scale.
In a country with major climate change effects, poor network connectivity, spotty electricity and relatively low levels of infrastructure and agricultural industry, this is not going to be easy. That’s why we need you.
The deadline to apply is April 30, but we will review applications on a rolling basis, so apply today!
