Meet the Team – Mary Njeri Mburu

Job title: 
Finance Assistant

How long have you been at Futurepump? 
8 months

Describe a usual day: 
My day starts at 9:00am, I first go through the field technicians cash requests. I get to communicate with the technicians in the office since I have to know whether they are aware that the field technicians have different assignments with the farmers. This I do as a way of supporting both the technicians in the office and also the monitoring and evaluation team so as to ensure that the farmers will be served to their satisfaction, as well as having one control employee to ensure that money requested will be spent as intended. After which I go through the emails, action where necessarily followed by the standard operating procedure so as to ensure that I get to know which orders are pending among other responsibilities.

What do you like best about working at Futurepump? 
What I like most is the fact that I don’t have to be pushed to do the work, I am the one to plan for my days and when other activities that I had not planned for come up I don’t have to be followed to do them. Simply nobody is monitoring one another peoples’ work and we are motivated by the work. 

Favourite hobby when not working: 
During my free time I play frisbee and I also love cooking.
