Saadia Imad, Chief Field Support

I have been working with IFAD since 2016 as the Chief of the Field Support Unit. This role is an important element of IFAD's operation in the field - we provide the logistics, the conduit and the means for IFAD to carry out its mandate and operations. Not only the administrative aspect  - we also provide the coverage to food security, which is essential considering that IFAD has a significant  presence in fragile states and conflicted regions in the world.

Joseph Nganga, Programme Officer

I have worked as a Country Programme Officer since 2011, but before that I worked in IFAD-funded projects in Kenya. When I was recruited to work at IFAD I was overjoyed. Starting as a national officer and now participating at the international level has been great - blending hard facts with experience drawn from the field and spicing them up was quite a contribution.

Seiko Yabumoto, Assistant

I've been at IFAD since 2006 initially as temporary staff and in 2007 I started working with the governing bodies office as an assistant. In 2011 I become Assistant to the Director & Treasurer. My roles at IFAD have been a great  way to be exposed to IFAD operations – all official documents pass through the Governing Bodies office and all the IFAD commitments and deliverables are recorded. That  was a great way to be thrown into IFAD's work. I have brought previous experience and knowledge with me from the private sector and the fashion industry. Everything that you learn, you never throw away. At IFAD I have been able to build on these experiences.
