The Credit for Agriculture Producers (CAP) Project is a four year project (2016-2020) funded by USAID that will be implemented by World Council for Credit Unions (WOCCU) with oversight and technical assistance from Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA). The purpose of the project is to strengthen the credit union sector in Ukraine to improve the quality of the financial services and products offered to farmers and agribusinesses in rural areas in Ukraine. The CAP Project will support broad-based resilient economic development through a multi-faceted approach to further develop  Ukraine’s credit union sector. In order to achieve its objectives, the CAP Project, with support of international, credit union experts and volunteers, will work closely with the National Commission on Regulation of Financial Services Markets and the two credit union associations: the All-Ukrainian Credit Union Association (AUCUA) and Ukrainian National Association of Savings and Credit Unions (UNASCU).
