Malawi: Sustainable Livelihoods: Completed

Check out CCA's Final Evaluation Report for results on this and other completed projects.

An inclusive financial system is critical to the development of a country's economy. With this understanding the Malawi Union of Savings and Credit Co-operatives (MUSCCO), through its nationwide network of Savings and Credit Co-operatives (SACCOs), is helping to strengthen the institutional structures of the SACCOs through increased membership, improved technology, and enhanced risk management so that the SACCOs are able to provide better and safer financial services to their members including the the rural poor, women and youth.

Malawi sustainable livelihoods through SACCOs

CCA has supported MUSCCO's work since 2002 through financial management and leadership training, developing special services and products for women and youth, programmes to mainstream HIV/AIDS and gender equality and assisting in the computerization of SACCO's. CCA has also provided specialized technical assistance to help the credit union system weather an economic crisis in Malawi.
