Read what our talented team loves about working at EFL!
“I joined EFL because I wanted to work at a company that has a mission to make the world a better place. It’s extremely satisfying to know my efforts each day directly contribute to creating economic opportunities. Recently, I traveled down to Peru where I got to see first-hand someone using my android application to apply for a loan. He was able to leave that same day with an approval letter!
I am continually challenged by the intellectual nature of our projects as we tackle big problems, and I love being surrounding by our team – they’re a high performing, considerate group of people who impress me everyday. I’m excited by the endless opportunities for learning and growth. Not only are there opportunities to travel, but with an international team, we’re exposed daily to other cultures and points of view.”
-Andrea, Implementation & Client Success Manager (Boston)
“Long before I joined the company, I had been attracted to EFL for its innovative impact on financial inclusion. When I started, I was surprised by how geographically spread and culturally diverse the team is, but then I realized that the people are so open and extremely willing to get their hands dirty, even at the senior management level.
I find it both challenging and rewarding to be an Account Manager. Some degree of flexibility is needed here: one day, you might be out in the field or local market with a partner’s officer, and another day you might need to suit up for a board meeting – but that’s what keeps it interesting! Oh, and the awesome annual retreat to South America is a huge perk!”
-Ipam, Account Manager (Jakarta)
“What I really enjoy on a daily basis is getting to think deeply and interacting with great people. EFL encourages an environment of openness to new ideas and high efficiency. We are constantly seeking improvement and innovation. There is always something new that comes up, something that I have never done before, that gets me out of my comfort zone. My colleagues are great: they are smart, reasonable, kind and willing to share their knowledge and hear out your ideas! I can see everyday that they are committed to EFL’s mission and that they want to have an impact, to make a change.”
-Rose, Senior Analyst (Lima)
“At EFL I’m constantly learning from my peers, from our partners, and from management, who is really committed to empowering me and growing my skills through training and coaching. My work in business development directly opens the door to creating opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people through access to credit. With the company’s global footprint, we face constant challenges to apply our knowledge and ingenuity differently and creatively, which keeps me on my toes.”
-Alfredo, Director of Business Development for Latin America (Lima)
“Working at EFL is a game-changer for me. At EFL I work for something that really matters with an amazing team of warm-hearted, driven, and extremely smart people who believe in what we do. On top of that, every day is different and exciting. I could be on a call with colleagues located in 3 different continents in the morning, meeting with top executives from a financial institution for lunch, and analyzing a client’s results in the afternoon. The travel is a bonus – going to the field in rural Central America and meeting the entrepreneurs who will have access to finance for the first time in their lives is priceless. I’ll never forget my first trip to Guatemala; seeing the face of a loan applicant while he was waiting for his credit decision to arrive made me realize how important it is for many people to receive a loan, even if it’s a small amount.”
-Santiago, Account Manager (Mexico City)
