Liberia: 'Cultivate Culture of Saving'

The Deputy Chief of Party of the World Council of Credit Union Liberia (WOCCU-Liberia) has admonished Liberians to practice the culture of saving if they are to succeed in their undertakings.

Mr. Michael Pewu said Liberians business people need to learn how to save portion of their daily income for future purposes.

Mr. Pewu said some Liberians are yet to adapt the culture of saving as part of their daily life activities.

He said as part of effort to create awareness amongst the people, WOCCU-Liberia in partnership with other local and international Credit Unions is establishing centers across Liberia.

Mr. Pewu said the union is constructing a center in region one, which covers Montserrado, Bomi, Cape Mount and Gbarpolu counties to carter for people in that region.

He said the other regions are also being considered by the union for the establishment of various centers to assist the people and the government of Liberia.

The WOCCU-Liberia boss said the organization currently covers 101 countries world-wide with Liberia being the first country in West Africa.
