CUFA’s work involves developing and supporting financial cooperatives in communities that previously had little or no access to a financial institution.
What does a financial institution do for a community?
The presence of a financial cooperative in a community provides a safe place for people to save their money and take out loans. It teaches people how to manage their money and save for a brighter future. The employment opportunities it creates for the villagers empowers women, those living with a disability and communities as a whole through financial independence. Our work aims to improve lives and relieve poverty in a sustainable way.
