The St Thomas Community is now home to First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union (FHC), following the Grand Opening of its newest Branch in the parish on Friday ( March 3).

This is one in a series of activities undertaken by the Credit Union to bolster its service delivery through an enhanced member experience, and support the national thrust to re-energise St Thomas.

The multimillion-dollar investment by FHC is seen as a logical and necessary step towards strengthening the growth and expansion of access to full-suite financial services, including Agricultural lending not only in St. Thomas but across the country, ultimately positively impacting the industry as well as the economy.

At the new branch, members are afforded comfort, convenience and more ways to secure their financial freedom through FHC’s practical loan products and investment services.

First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union continues to expand its investment in the historic parish through the deepening of relationships with non-profit and other community-based organizations to effect positive change at the youth, community and education levels. 

Recently, the Credit Union partnered with the St Thomas Renaissance Foundation, Inc. (STTFR) to host the second annual staging of the Paul Bogle and the Warriors Debate Competition which is dedicated to engaging students in intellectual discourse about the Morant Bay War and funding the winning debate team, Morant Bay High School’s participation in the US-based competition at the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Georgia in April.

She continued, “As we deepen our relationships through more collaboration, we continue to strategize ways to empower the community through expanded access to financial services and financial literacy.”

First Heritage Co-operative Credit Union is focused on the advancement of commerce and the enrichment of the people who live in the communities in which they operate.
