City of Bridgetown Co-operative Credit Union Limited was registered on the 20th October 1983.
Historical documents indicate that C.O.B was formed by individuals who had much difficulty accessing funds from other financial institutions.
Seeing the wisdom of forming a society which allowed young professionals like themselves to channel their limited resources and have easy access to a credit union, they came together to create an organisation that provides these services. Thus, C.O.B. was established.
In the months to follow, many discussions took place – facilitated by persons who generously allowed their homes to be used on such occasions. Volunteers handled the society’s business up to this time.
