The launch of Gateway Co-operative Credit Union (2017) Limited on January 3, 2017 herald the beginning OF NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR FORMER MEMBERS OF MONTEGO CO-OPERATIVE CREDIT UNION AND HANOVER CO-OPERATIVE CREDIT UNION WHO APPROVED THE MERGER OF BOTH ORGANIZATIONS.

This merger of equal partners will see over 70,000 members having access to new products and services that were never available to them hitherto the merger. Transactions can now be done at both branches (Montego Bay and Lucea) with the potential to add others. Additionally, persons and co-operatives in the county of Cornwall, not just St. James and Hanover, can become members of the merged entity.

Boasting combined assets of over $6bn and deposits in excess of $5bn, resources are now available to improve the economic lives of our members through small business and other loans at competitive rates delivered in an efficient way at a low cost. The team at Gateway, which i am honored to lead, is committed and very excited about the merger. The tag line “Opening The Way To Your Financial Success” is our guiding principle in serving our members with distinction and the courtesy they deserve.

I take this opportunity to thank all the past volunteers, employees and other stakeholders who served the former credit unions before the merger, thus paving the way for what will become a successful new entity in Gateway Co-operative Credit Union (2017) Limited.
