The World Council of Credit Unions’ Global Women’s Leadership Network has more than doubled the number of its Sister Societies in Africa and added two new chapters in the United States, bringing the organization’s total to 108 chapters in 26 countries, according to an announcement from WOCCU.

In Africa, the new Sister Societies, which bring together women in the credit union industry to network, discuss credit union issues and provide education, are in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and The Gambia.
