All people should have access to affordable, reliable and sustainable financial services. Since 1971, we have implemented nearly 300 technical assistance programs in 71 countries to build safe and sound financial cooperatives with affordable financial products and services.
With funding from a wide range of multi-lateral, government and private partners, we promote economic security, resilience and livelihoods strengthening through the sustainable development of local, well managed, savings-led financial institutions. Our programs empower millions of marginalized and traditionally unbanked people. World Council supports financial markets in growing economies, along with global partners, such as USAID, the UN, and the World Bank by promoting financial inclusion, strengthening institutions as well as providing policy and regulatory support.
