History & Present

The G.U.T. Credit Union began as the brainchild of Denise De Coteau who, in 1977, thought it necessary for teachers to have a financial cooperative.

However, it was not until April 3rd 1983, after months of diligent and untiring efforts in framing, reframing, refining and redefining policies and by-laws that the credit union was finally registered. Mr. Thaddeus Mc Ewen was elected as the first president of the credit union.

It is worthy to note that 1983 was a critical and pivotal period in the history of Grenada. Therefore the birthing of a financial organization at that time was indeed a tremendous challenge.

The G.U.T Co-operative Credit Union Ltd, initially formed to serve teachers, opened its bond on 15th April, 2004 to include salaried members of the general public. The GUTCU has since welcomed Police and GCNA Credit Unions as part of its expanded family.

Today, we have assets of over $120 million and our membership has grown to more than 9,000.
