Insight on the global credit union movement

Our newsroom is designed to provide easy access to educational and informational resources about us, our mission and the global credit union movement. We are the only organization representing credit unions in developed and developing countries on a global scale. We hope our newsroom will be your key to understanding the operations and potential of this exciting movement.

Who we are

World Council of Credit Unions is the global trade association and development agency for credit unions. We promote the sustainable development of credit unions and other financial cooperatives around the world to empower people through access to high quality and affordable financial services. We advocate on behalf of the global credit union system before international organizations and work with national governments to improve legislation and regulation. Our technical assistance programs introduce new tools and technologies to strengthen credit unions' financial performance and increase their outreach.
