Cooperativa La Union
Access to credit and jobs
COOPUNION wants to expand its outreach to micro and small entrepreneurs, as well as to other people in the community who need funds for home improvements and home loans. Additionally, a small portion of the resources will be invested in small agriculture loans for organic cocoa cultivation. Over the next years the funds are expected to reach some 3,600 individuals with no or difficult access to credit from commercial banks. The funds are expected to generate some 7,200 indirect jobs in rural areas.
