launched an awareness campaign on the benefits of saving in DRC, with the support of the Central Bank.

The objective is to contribute to the improvement of social and economic conditions of low-income populations by providing financial services.

The three-month awareness campaign - officially launched last Thursday (April 25th) - will focus on the benefits of savings products.

Mecrecos' Managing Director Franck Adibou reaffirmed the determination of the mutual savings network to serve populations abandoned by the traditional system, stating that there is no credit if there is no savings: "First we must set its vital needs to think about development", he said, quoted by newspaper Le Potentiel.

A team of Mecreco officers will tour the capital Kinshasa to raise awareness on savings and the role of Mecrecos visiting schools, markets and universities.ADNFCR-2976-ID-801579710-ADNFCR
