Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions Launches Resilience Initiative in Ukraine

Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions (WFCU) this week tapped its Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund for $500,000 to launch a new credit union lending program aimed at assisting vulnerable populations and boosting sustainable development in Ukraine.

Working in cooperation with the USAID/WOCCU Credit for Agriculture Producers (CAP) Project, WFCU launched its Resilience Initiative after signing agreements with two United (Central) Credit Unions (UCUs) in Ukraine.
