  • Description

    The ninth Annual African Conference on mobilisation of local savings and the second annual meeting of ACOSCA opened in Addis Ababa on Monday (23 August). One of the major stumbling blocks in African local development has been the lack of saving among wage earners. For two years ACOSCA - the African Cooperative Saving and Credit Association -- has gone a long way towards creating an institutional framework, and a climate, for saving, 220,000 people now belong to credit unions. Individual savings can be mobilised for national and productive purposes.
