Financial Access for
Women Farmers

Sri Lanka


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.
