Before I joined Mango Fund, the board considered the SME space a difficult, if not impossible, space to operate in. There was also a capacity gap in the team. After compiling data on our loans, I put together a financial due diligence tool for our investment decisions. This has led to great results and the trend is going in the right direction Alexandre Tremblay-Ponton, June 2016, EWB Long-Term Fellow with Mango Fund

My greatest accomplishment in my placement was organizing a successful, large scale lobbying meeting primarily with members of parliament. The meeting was a starting point for discussions around achieving improved financing for service delivery. Gains are being made. Monique Miller, April 2016, EWB Long-Term Fellow with WASH Catalyst
My focus since joining Kwangu-Kwako has been on using my engineering background in product design. I’ve been designing multiple new features we are hoping to implement to our design, so that it better meets our user’s needs.’ Chris Morgan. August 2016, Long-Term Fellow with Kwangu-Kwako
Working in Malawi as a Junior Fellow after my first year in university turned my world upside down. My naïve idea of what development means changed to something more complex, more difficult, more confusing… I can’t think of any experience that has had a bigger impact on my life’s direction in the past decade. Emily Stewart, Junior Fellow in Malawi
