Proxfin members gather around the topic of financial inclusion in agricultural areas
This year, the members of the Proxfin international network celebrate International Credit Union Day in Cartagena, Colombia. They converged on this coastal city of South America to hold their annual meeting, coinciding with the 5th Congress on Agricultural Financing and Marketing (FYCA).
This meeting will have enabled Proxfin representatives to share their experience and the strategies they have put forward over the years to increase access to agricultural financial services and to participate in financial education and inclusion for agri-entrepreneurs.
Proxfin members are joining their voices to recall the essential contribution of financial co-operatives and other inclusive finance institutions to the achievement of several of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals: fighting poverty, food security, economic growth and job creation, gender equity and climate action, to name but these ones.
To all, a happy International Credit Union Day!
