The Credit Unions of Jamaica are dedicated to carrying out the Mission that governs them. This Mission reads:
The Jamaican Credit Unions are dedicated to:
- Improving the quality of life of their members and financing economic independence.
- Providing a high level of financial sets to members.
- Offering competitive financial sets to members.
- Offering responsible advice to members in order to obtain their savings and investment.
- Performing with integrity in conformity with the Co-Operatives Society Act and regulations.
- Responding to the needs of the community within the frame work of the co-operative structure.
Unions function on a much different platform that edges and that is why more and more Jamaicans are steering towards becoming “members”.
ALL the different unions of Jamaica are a part of a movement that places them under ONE umbrella. Here is an overview of this said movement…
The Credit Union Movement of Jamaica started with Father John P. Sullivan, who pioneered the creation of Jamaica’s first Credit Union – Sodality Co-operative Credit Union Ltd.
Today, the Movement has grown to 38 unions located island wide, all represented by the umbrella brand, the Credit Unions of Jamaica (CUJ), Your Path to Financial Freedom!
Well with all the introductory framework completed, let me provide you with a list (not too extensive) of some of the Unions that operates in Jamaica.
