Credit Union Member Farmers in Ukraine Receive Free Fuel Through Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions’ Program2022-10-25
More than 17,000 gallons of diesel fuel is being distributed to credit union member farmers in Ukraine free of charge, as part of Worldwide Foundation for Credit Unions’ (WFCU) ongoing relief activities there.
Fuel remains in scarce supply in Ukraine due to Russia’s continued aggression, which means the price of diesel also continues to increase. Under the Fuel Disbursement Program, WFCU tapped its Ukrainian Credit Union Displacement Fund to purchase $100,000 worth of diesel from Ukrainian national fuel station chain OKKO, and provided a total of 1,329 free fuel coupons to Ukrainian small- and medium-sized farmers who took out agricultural loans at credit unions that partner with the USAID/WOCCU Credit for Agriculture Producers (CAP) Project.
