People living in poverty worldwide lack the basic financial services that so many of us take for granted. Without access to microloans, many of the world's working poor aren't able to grow their small businesses, and without a safe place to save money, their meager earnings can disappear.
Since 1971, World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) has been working to change this by creating opportunities that last — opportunities made possible through credit unions.
Credit unions are a unique solution, and they take a different approach than other microfinance institutions or charities. By helping communities build their own credit unions, WOCCU ensures members gain access to the financial building blocks needed to support families and strengthen local economies. And this is why credit unions are a sustainable solution to help the world's poor lift themselves out of poverty.
The Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions is the official fundraising and gift-receiving organization for WOCCU.
