Credit unions making significant contribution to society

The local credit union movement has not only grown and blossomed since the 1940s but has made a significant difference in the socio-economic lives of Barbadians.

On International Credit Union Day, General Manager of the Barbados Cooperative Credit Union League, Anthony Pilgrim, says the institutions have managed to attract hundreds of thousands of members.

He credits their success to the practicing of financial inclusion.

Staying true to this year’s theme, Inspiring Hope for a Global Community, he says the credit union movement is playing its part in providing relief during the Covid-19 pandemic.
