“Education and Access’: Responsible Finance for Persons with Disabilities” implemented by Good Return and Chamroeun Microfinance Plc

Up to one in ten people in Cambodia experience some disability, but many persons with disabilities face barriers in accessing financial services.

With support from ACCESS, Chamroeun Microfinance Plc. and Good Return are working with the government, Organisations of Persons with Disabilities (OPDs) and other partners to implement a model of disability inclusive financial services that other banks and MFIs can follow. Through financial education and access to finance, persons with disabilities are empowered to run their own businesses, and generate income for themselves and their families.

On this page we have shared the story of our project, experiences of participants and practical resources so you can make your organisation more accessible for persons with disabilities.
