With a monetization grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (2005-11), World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) is strengthening Sri
Lanka’s financial cooperatives and expanding financial access to people
living in rural and conflict-affected areas.
In 2009, a new relationship began with
Sri Lanka Women’s Development Co-operative Society Limited, better known
as Women’s Co-op, a network of more than 120 branches owned and
operated entirely by women.
