Credit Union Helps Alleviate Poverty
San Dimas, CA - September 5, 2012
Christian Community Credit Union Helps Alleviate Poverty in Developing Countries
In Sri Lanka, getting a bank loan requires collateral and salary slips, making loans nearly impossible for fisherman, like Sebastian Lusion (above), who sell their catch for cash each day. Thanks to a credit union loan, Sebastian was able to repair his boat and continue providing for his wife and three children.
Christian Community Credit Union, a proud supporter of the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU), is helping people in developing countries access savings and credit services to lift themselves out of poverty.
For more than 40 years, WOCCU has been at the forefront of alleviating poverty around the world. From Afghanistan and Bolivia, to Kenya and Uzbekistan, WOCCU has completed credit union development projects in 71 nations by providing a not-for-profit, self-sustaining structure. With programs such as developing core data processing systems for African credit unions, helping small farmers become self-sufficient in Latin America or starting credit unions in Afghanistan, Christian Community Credit Union's support of WOCCU helps the working poor in the most hard-to-reach places.
