SEF Graduate Internship Programme 2021/2022 – How to Apply.


SEF was founded in 1992 by John De Wit and Matome Malatji, beginning with two small loans and one big vision.

Our beginnings took root in Limpopo province, the poorest region of the country. While our presence there is still strong, our reach has expanded. We have now grown to serve about 218,645 clients, 99% of which are women, in 6 different South African provinces.


The SEF Graduate Programme is a 12-month training and development programme aimed at recent graduates with a commitment to the elimination of poverty and a passion for changing the world.

Successful candidates will be in a 6-month rotational programme, which will give them the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience in all the departments of the organization. These include Operations, Administrations, Finance, Quality and Compliance, Training, Human Resources, Research and Development, and Information Technology.

Departmental Specialisation:

During the second half of the Graduate Programme, the successful candidates will be assigned to one of the departments, based on their professional interests and the organization’s needs. This will assure relevant practical exposure to a specific department and allow the candidate to strengthen applicable and useful skills to cover future roles within the organization.
