SWA also in rural lending

T he Editor,

This is in reference to the article in the Phnom Penh Post (Sept 22) on Rural Credit

schemes.

The article omits one member of the inter-ministerial National Credit Committee for

Rural Development (CCRD), namely the State Secretariat for Women's Affairs (SWA).

As a matter of fact, the SWA is currently running the oldest credit scheme in Cambodia

(initiated in 1988), which is also now one of the largest, with more than 15,000

loan-takers in 300 villages in 60 districts of 18 provinces and a total amount of

the riel equivalent of $700,000 in the scheme (30 June figures). The scheme receives

assistance from UNICEF and the Caisse Français de Developpement.
- Chou Bun Eng, Director of Public Information, SWA.
