Oikocredit Northwest was established to support the work of Oikocredit UA (Oikocredit), an international development cooperative which helps poor and marginalized people by empowering them with credit. Our mission is to inform and educate our fellow citizens about microfinance in general and Oikocredit in specific. Our Board and committees are comprised of dedicated volunteers who are committed to helping spread the word about microfinance as a pathway out of poverty.
Oikocredit Northwest is a Support Association of Oikocredit UA and is responsible for the USA Northwest States of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. We work closely with Oikocredit USA headquartered in Washington D.C.
