Credit Union of the Year 2021


The COVID-19 pandemic rocked the world when the first case was reported back in 2019. In March 2020 when the Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed Jamaica’s first case, our Tourism industry was brought to its knees and by extension a large group of the LEPCCU membership base found themselves being laid off as they were directly impacted by this.

Not withstanding the DRM restrictions, the strength of the Credit Union and its members were tested when LEPCCU was forced to close its doors and welcome what will be the ‘new normal.’ LEPCCU built an online community and from this, we made strides in loan and membership growth. The resilience of our staff, volunteers and members proved stronger than the devastation of any pandemic. Our efforts did not go unnoticed as we were awarded Credit Union of the year 2021 in the category of Small.
