June 2016, Kampong Thom- The activities of savings groups in Kampong Thom province got underway last month with the help of CTIP implementing partner CEDAC. CEDAC will form and support 100 community-lead savings groups in 2016, which will impact around 2,000 member families who will be able to build financial-management skills, develop long-term business plans, use computer-based accounting systems and borrow from a collective fund. These savings groups address the economic root causes of unsafe migration and trafficking encouraging safe community-based borrowing and more effective financial management.
