Brief History

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Teacher Co-operative Credit Union (SVG TCCU) started in 1978 with members of Teachers Union only. In 1985, all the members of the teaching profession were allowed to join. This bond was extended to family members of Teachers in 1989. 

At the Special General Meeting in January of 2004, the Bye Laws were amended to allow all Vincentians, home and abroad, to become members of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Teachers Co-operative Credit Union. 

The School Supplies outlet and bookshop began operation in June, 1993, expanding the range of services offered to members. 

With the aim of expanding and being available to members throughout St. Vincent & the Grenadines, the Bequia Branch was opened on April 12th, 2007; the Union Island Branch was opened on March 1st, 2012 while the Canouan Branch began operations on November 23rd, 2018. 

The former Barrouallie Co-operative Credit Union (BCCU) was established on 12th December 1958, and was the second oldest Credit Union in St. Vincent. On November 3rd, 2014 the former BCCU merged with the SVG TCCU LTD. and became its Barrouallie Branch
