Venezuelans have been forced to emigrate due to dire economic conditions at home and many needs help in establishing a new livelihood in their host country. USAID works to support the World Council of Credit Unions’ Economic Inclusion Project (WOCCU) to improve the economic security of Venezuelans’ and local people in vulnerable situations through activities that support labor market insertion, strengthen microenterprises and facilitate access to financial services.

The Economic Inclusion Project will build greater socio-economic security for Venezuelan migrants and refugees in Ecuador and Perú as well as their host communities. Project activities are implemented in Lima, Perú and in Quito and Guayaquil in Ecuador, which are the cities with the largest populations of Venezuelan immigrants in the respective countries.
