Eugene Gene – Tour Operator

I remember checking around at other banks trying to get a loan to purchase my bus. I had $500,000 and they said I needed more collateral. I went to First Regional’s St. Ann’s Bay Branch and they approved my loan for $1,500,000.00. I was able to purchase my bus and since then I have recommended First Regional to other people and have taken a second loan, a third loan…..and enjoyed the benefits. This my bank, First Regional is a family to me. They do for me what only my mother would do. They are like a mother; always looking out for their children.

When I reflect on the four (4) years doing the University of Technology’s Bachelor of Business Administration Programme, I conclude that the experience molded me in unprecedented ways for my career. In retrospect, I could not have made it this far without the help of First Regional Co-operative Credit Union Limited. It was with their help that my mother was able to finance my studies year after year for me to realize my dream of tertiary education. There is a sense that furthering the education of the youth matters to them and I would like to think this is because their soul has been deepened and enriched by the dignity of helping others.

As such, my mother and I extend our wholehearted thanks to First Regional Co-operative Credit Union Limited for their assistance. We pray that you will continue to satisfy the financial needs of your members and provide them with opportunities to realize their life’s aspirations and dreams.

First Regional Co-operative Credit Union have not only acknowledged the need to assist me in achieving my goals but have started an initiative that will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark in my life, as well as the many other scholars. I currently have a long-term savings account at the Credit Union and was able to get assistance from their Tertiary Level Bursary Programme. They are practical solutions and feasible solutions to my school expenses.

In my deepest and darkest moments, what really got me through were simple words of prayers, most times “Thank you, I leave all things in your hands,” but this time my prayer was “Help!” First Regional Co-operative Credit Union was only one prayer away. I can proudly say that I am a recipient of their 2017/2018 Tertiary Level Bursary, among many others from primary and secondary school level, which has given me a ray of hope as I strive for success. I am a fourth-year medical student at the University of the West Indies pursuing a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.S) in the faculty of Medical Sciences, and the Credit Union has helped me in putting my best life forward as I maximize my potentials.
