Angola: Micro-Credit Considered Indispensable Tool to Fight Poverty

The government's programme of micro-credit is a valuable and indispensable tool to fight against hunger and poverty, said on Monday in Luanda the chairman of the board of directors of Sol Bank, Miguel Coutinho.

The banker said so to Angop when inaugurating a new branch of the referred bank in Belas municipality.

He said that the micro-credit programme will always be present in Sol Bank's leadership agenda.

The manager advocated that Angola can only achieve growth levels by significantly reducing poverty.

"Sol Bank, which is a driving force and at the leading edge of the programme, will continue to work to make poverty reduction a reality" said Miguel Coutinho.

Sol Bank supports the efforts of the Angolan government, which consists on the recovery, reconstruction and development of the national economy.

With the inauguration of the new banking agency, Sol Bank totals 145 branches countrywide and employs 200.000 workers.
