Join us in celebrating the 30th anniversary of Village Savings & Loan Associations (VSLAs) and World Savings Day this Saturday 30th October! CARE International in Lao PDR has given great attention to the establishment of VSLAs, with the aim of building the leadership capacity of women, especially ethnic women, to help them learn to manage their income more efficiently and to build a stronger family economy. We believe that having VSLAs can help to communities to develop and promote increased gender equality for all.
