Oleg Vakhrushev, Chairman, Nizhny Novgorod Credit Union, Russia

"Every WYCUP participant, including me, brought home a bag stacked with new contacts, experience, knowledge, ideas and emotions. I think that the granted possibility to meet in person and communicate with people representing different parts of the world but who are united by the same way of thinking and passion—credit union movement—is priceless."
