As a business development analyst at Hypoport, my main responsibility is to further the development and roll-out of the MyFitTest software – a tool for risk management and reporting for companies in the Solar PayGo and agri-finance sectors. The tool aims to lower the barriers to access to finance and support energy access development.
On a day-to-day basis, I am involved with liaising with the software development team, project management, market analysis, and outreach. I also support Hypoport in Africa on the project finance side.
