Cambodian Community Savings Federation
Summary   Partnership history

Cambodian Credit Savings Federation (CCSF) was the first pioneer of the credit union model in Cambodia.

CCSF began as the Small Economic Activity Development project with CARE Cambodia, funded by AusAID through CARE Australia in 1998. Its original mission was to promote savings and thrift habits based on the nine operating principles of credit unions.

CCSF operates as a credit union federation by virtue of its registration with the Ministry of Interior of the Royal Government of Cambodia on 6th December 2002. It also operates as a rural microfinance service provider by virtue of its registration with the National Bank of Cambodia on 7th March 2003.

Today, CCSF supports over 50,000 individual members and their families.
