Fecolfín are the specialised Federation of Credit and Savings Cooperatives of Colombia with headquarters in the city of Bogotá. Fecolfín was created in May 2012 as a second degree Cooperative body that integrates only Cooperative entities with financial activity.
Its main objective is to assume the defence and representation of the Savings and Credit & Financial Cooperatives as a specialised union, especially in regulatory matters, which affect the free competition of this sector and the equality rights enshrined in the Colombian Constitution, compared to traditional financial operators. Likewise, advance the union defence of this sub-sector and promote modern and inclusive legislation based on the issuance of public policies by the Colombian state, to generate a country of owners through the financial cooperative model. Finally, promote the orderly and systematic growth of its affiliates especially, in the link of new associates to these self-management entities.
