The local credit union movement has been praised for its role in providing a range of financial services to the poor and working-class people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The commendation came from former General Employees Cooperative Credit Union (GECCU) Scholarship holder Kimberly Cambridge, while delivering last night’s final lecture in GECCU’s Pioneer Lecture Series.
The lecture was delivered on the topic “Making Credit Unions Relevant to Young People” and was dedicated to GECCU’s first President Bertrand Neehall.
Miss Cambridge said the services of the credit unions are designed to meet the needs of the working class.
Miss Cambridge also noted that St. Vincent and the Grenadines is one of the pioneers of the credit union movement in the region.
