Job Description:

Visionary Consulting Partners seeks four Financial Analysts to support USAID’s Development Credit Authority (DCA). Duties will be performed remotely (not necessarily in WDC). Performance starts on/about May 15, 2017 to September 30, 2017.
The Development Credit Authority (DCA) structures and issues partial credit guarantees to encourage private capital lending to creditworthy but underserved borrowers throughout the developing world. These guarantees, which typically cover 50% of realized loss, enable USAID to leverage private sector wealth for sustainable economic development. Since 1999, the DCA has supported over 470 risk-sharing guarantees and has made available over $4.4 billion in private financing to more than 200,000 entrepreneurs around the world. The guarantee is a flexible tool that can be applied to a wide range of development projects and are available to virtually any type of lender seeking to deploy debt capital into the markets in which USAID programs operate.

The selected candidates will join the DCA team in supporting the annual re-estimate process.

• Search the internet for any reports of fraud or other wrongdoing.
• Spread the most recent financial data into the relevant re-estimate spreadsheet.
• Analyze the financial condition of the entity and provide a brief write-up of that condition, highlighting financial metrics of interest and including any changes from the prior year.
• Discuss work with the DCA office as needed.
