I worked at Finca International full-time (More than 5 years)
I would recommend FINCA for those seeking experience in microfinance and working in the international development field. (Depending on which department joining) Could also be a good start for interesting careers in non- or for-profit aspects of international development/social investing/finance.
The inevitable challenge of pairing NGO and banking is a philosophical challenge which affects operations and careers of those considering employment. Non-profit "weight" is carried through and might not be the best fit for those interested in moving to mainstream international investing or finance.
On the other hand, a combination of the two would provide a solid entry into the non-profit world, international aid/development field.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Finca International in September 2016.
It was a Skype Interview with two employees. The interview was a behavioral one, and the questions were relatively standard. Overall, the interview process was alright, but seemed rather abrupt as though they did not have a lot of time to conduct the interview. This may have been because it was an internship position.
