Assignment within the network: Deputy Head of Operations, Advans Côte d’Ivoire January 2012 to present

Date of joining Advans and initial institution: 2006, Advans Cameroun

What does your role in another affiliate entail?
I initially participated in the launch of operations in Côte d’Ivoire, recruiting and training the first commercial teams and then taking on the role of Branch Manager of the first branch at Adjamé. Since July 2013 I have moved to work as Deputy Head of Operations at head office in order to manage the supervision of all of Advans Côte d’Ivoire’s branches.

Why did you want to do an exchange within the Advans group?
After five years of working as head of HR and Logistics at Advans Cameroun I wanted a new challenge. I also wanted to broaden my knowledge of the microfinance sector and gain more experience in the profession.

What key skills have you learnt from the exchange?
I’ve learnt a great deal and I continue to learn today. Being part of the launch of a new institution and taking on a different role in a new situation meant that I had to adopt a new approach to my profession. I fully appreciate being able to work in a multicultural environment and think that I am now more resourceful and flexible than I was before I came to Côte d’Ivoire. This experience has enabled me to prove my capacity to adapt, and will certainly be very useful in the future.
