Greetings from Savings Bank Essen, Germany Posted: Mar 06,2012
We send our warmest greetings to the XI. National Congress of the Vietnam Women's Union and wish the Congress best success.
Our cooperation with the Vietnam Women's Union, which started in 2005, is based on the common belief that all endeavours will only be successful and sustainable, if they are carried out in a professional way. TYM Fund is the best proof for this wisdom. It was the first microfinance organization of Vietnam that received a Licence of SBV. Being the owner of TYM, the VWU makes sure that the Fund can develop steadily and reach more and more women.
We would be happy to see TYM become a model for other microfinance projects in Vietnam and in the region, for example for the WFDF (Women and Family Development Fund) in Laos und thus allow many people to get access to suitable financial services.
We will continue our support for the Vietnam Women's Union. We just signed the agreement for the next phase of our joint TYM project. In the coming years our support will focus on the training and qualification of women, especially the staff of TYM.
We wish all the delegates a successful Congress with important decisions to bring further improvements to the life of Vietnamese women and happiness to their families.
With the best wishes, also on behalf of our German colleagues, Savings Bank Essen Dr. Henning Osthues-Albrecht and Klaus Remmer
