About Us

First National Credit Union Co-operative Society Limited was formerly called the Point Fortin Area Credit Union Co-operative Society Limited. The credit union changed its name on the 25th March 1998 at its Annual General Meeting.

The credit union was established from the amalgamation of the Shell Staff Credit Union and the Techier Village Credit Union with a total membership of seven hundred and fifty-seven (757) members and a share capital of Seven Hundred and Sixty-Two. The institution was visible from its inception as it became a major financial centre for both the employees of Shell Trinidad Limited and the community of Point Fortin.

The merger was easily facilitated with a substantial portion of its membership having belonged to both founding institutions. The consequence was an organization heavily dependent on the petroleum sector.

However, over the period 1972 to 1993, the membership had grown to approximately thirteen thousand (13,000) persons with a Share ownership of up to Fifty Million Trinidad & Tobago Dollars (50,000,000) and employed twenty-two (22) persons. This has strengthened the organizationīs ability to absorb oscillations in the petroleum sector.

In its embryonic stage, the organization was predominantly a lending institution. However, it has emerged as an organization still focused on lending but has undertaken to provide investment and consultant financial services. These areas have surfaced as the catalyst for the future development and growth of First National Credit Union.

In 1998, the organization changed its name to First National Credit Union, thereby allowing the acceptance of ‘nationals’ of Trinidad And Tobago to become members of the Credit Union. In March 2000 the First National Credit Union acquired the County Council Employees Credit Union. The Credit Union now has assets of approximately 150 Million Dollars and Five (5) service locations in Point Fortin, Curepe, Siparia, Rio Claro and Tobago. The Credit Union has an experienced staff in the area of lending, and has a developing small business portfolio.
