The Nederlandse Vereniging voor Volkskrediet (NVVK) or association for public credit was set up in 1932 with the aim of counteracting the excessive interest rates charged by loan sharks. Today it acts as an intermediary between private individuals with debts, local authority lenders and private institutions, helping people to get out of debt and manage their money properly.
