    Dear Hiring Manager,

    I am writing to express my strong interest in the Senior Project Manager role at myAgro. As a passionate and experienced professional, I am thrilled at the opportunity to join an organization that is committed to creating sustainable and climate-resilient livelihoods for farmers in a part of the world that is already experiencing the harsh consequences of climate change.

    With over 7 years of experience in the execution and management of large-scale programs, I have the necessary skills and expertise to help myAgro deepen its impact on thousands of farmers. My previous work has included the following:
    Designing and implementing delivery programs for rural areas.
    Managing teams of experts and program associates.
    Partnering with various departments to achieve common goals.

    In addition to my technical skills, I have a good level of EQ and know how to collaborate effectively across departments. I am comfortable with fast-paced and changing conditions and have experience speaking to internal and external partners about my work. Furthermore, I am fluent in French and English, which will be an asset in communicating with myAgro's stakeholders.

    I am excited to work with myAgro and help increase farmers' impact through training, planting assistance, and procurement. I am committed to implementing appropriate quality systems to ensure and control quality for the agroforestry program and to continue improving the efficiency of operational processes related to the program. Finally, I am eager to partner with the Development team in agroforestry resource mobilization and relationship management with donors and partners.

    Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and experience further.
