Rural Finance and Cooperative Development (RUFCOD)
DATES: December 2009 - December 2012
PARTNERS: World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU)
This project helps to deliver financial services in rural and insecure areas by building self-sustaining and permanent Afghan-owned and governed financial cooperatives. USAID is supporting WOCCU to establish a network of credit unions that are sharia-compliant (known in Afghanistan as Islamic investment and finance cooperatives), and whose management and financing products have been adapted to the culturally and religiously conservative rural areas of Afghanistan.
