Future Leaders Programme / Trainee MSME Banking

In addition to the provision of advisory services to banks and non-banks in the MSME finance field, LFS Financial Systems GmbH, together with Access Microfinance Holding AG (Access Holding), has built a network of specialized small business banks (Access Banks) for which it acts as the management company and holds significant ownership. The AccessBank group currently comprises ten member banks in Sub-Saharan Africa, South America and Central Asia, which together employ more than 8,00 staff serving close to 570,000 clients.
The aim of the future leaders program is to acquaint new staff with the LFS lending methodology and tools as well as with the roles and responsibilities in a micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) finance bank. The nine-month training takes place in an Access network bank in Sub-Saharan Africa or the Caucasus region. After the training, Junior Banking Advisors are ready to take over first management resposibility in another Access network bank.

The training location is selected based on the experience and language skills of the trainee, as well as on project capacities and vacancies. Throughout the training, trainees are involved in the daily operations of the bank. Trainees are part of the LFS team on the ground and cooperate closely with the local staff in the bank.
