Job Description

NCBA CLUSA’s USAID-funded Farmer-to-Farmer program sends American farmers and agribusiness professionals on 2-4 week agricultural development assignments, promoting sustainable growth and agricultural development worldwide.

Volunteer technical assistance from U.S. farmers, agribusinesses, cooperatives and universities helps smallholder farmers in developing countries improve productivity, access new markets and conserve environmental and natural resources.

During COVID-19 we have shifted to a hybrid volunteer model that affords US volunteers and in-country volunteers the opportunity to continue to provide technical assistance.

We also have opportunities for people who are willing to travel. For more information visit NCBA CLUSA Farmer-to-Farmer.

NCBA CLUSA is currently seeking qualified Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer candidates, (1- US volunteer who is willing to travel or 1- US volunteer and 1- volunteer based in Ecuador who would work together) for the position of Grant Writer to support Asociación Nacional de Exportadores de Café del Ecuador (National Association of Coffee Exporters of Ecuador also known as ANECAFE), based in Manta, Ecuador .

ANECAFE was founded in May 1983 and is the oldest coffee trade union entity in Ecuador. They strive to lead Ecuador's coffee exporting sector in a sustainable way, as well as promote production increase, support the improvement of existing coffee production and achieve national and international recognition.

Coffee farmers and associations often do not qualify for a loan at a commercial bank or other financial institution and when they manage to qualify, interest rates are too high as their loans are considered high risk.

Investments are necessary to make coffee farming more sustainable and profitable, for current and future generations. Some of the resources available are rotating funds, climate change funds, grants from international organizations (including World Bank or ICO International Coffee Organization) and other type of funding.

This assignment will be a follow-up for a Funding Access assignment in which participants will learn how to manage grants and prepare budgets for grant execution.

Additionally, associates from ANECAFE want to understand strategies to maximize the success of awards or funds through the implementation of accountable processes, effective monitoring measures, and other key grants management best practices.

They want to learn about results presentation, ensure compliance with funder requirements, address aspects of grant finances, and report grants management progress to stakeholders.

Duration : 2 weeks, February- July 2022
