Visit Kenya and Croatia
Study, Service and Support
Field engagements can be deep-dive studies to understand the challenges a credit union system faces and the relevance of that experience at home. The engagements also allow participants to get involved with local credit union volunteer and community service work. Technical and advocacy efforts assist credit unions to help tackle their top technical or regulatory challenges.
