The AMF’s international activities are intended to provide financial support to programs that encourage the growth of sustainable cooperative financial systems, using the cooperative credit union model, for developing countries in South East Asia and the South Pacific.
International Credit Union Development Programs
The credit union cooperative model aims to provide a structure for the provision of basic banking services, and education in the value of regular saving and the wise use of credit. The AMF plans to provide financial support to activities conducted by the Asian Confederation of Credit Unions (ACCU). ACCU represents credit unions/co-operatives and have over 30 million members.
Guide for Credit Unions on climate action
The AMF is pleased to support the Asian Confederation of Credit Unions in taking action on climate change initiatives. Climate change presents significant educational challenges in understanding its causes and consequences, and AMF has partnered with the ACCU to produce a guide for Credit Unions on climate action. The guide is a compilation of programs and projects that Credit Unions can undertake to counter the impact of climate change.
