Andrew Maclay

Andrew is treasurer of Five Talents UK, and has been involved with Five Talents since 2009. He previously worked as a missionary in a rural location in Burundi, and absolutely believes in the power of microfinance to empower people and to transform lives, as it encourages local people to take charge of their own lives and to contribute to moving their families out of poverty, rather than relying on gifts and aid.

He remains amazed how saving 5p a month in Burundi can transform a woman's relationship with her family. His full-time job is working as a forensic accountant at Forensic Risk Alliance where he acts for companies and states in international arbitration cases, and is active in anti-corruption advocacy and investigation around the world.
