The story of how it all started.
In 1976 a group of nurses thought that if they pooled their resources and form co-operative, they would be able to satisfy some of their economic needs. The group’s expectation became a reality on August 5, 1976 when NAJ Co-operative Credit Union Limited became a registered entity.
The Credit Union was established to promote thrift among its members by affording them an opportunity to accumulate their savings; to create a source of credit for provident or productive purposes at a reasonable rate of interest and to provide the opportunity for members to use and control their money for their mutual benefit.
On July 1, 2013, the Board was widened to include:
- All Nurses, Midwives, Registered Medical Doctors, and other Health Care providers
- Permanent Clerical and Non-Clerical Workers within the Health Care Profession
- Staff of Nurses Association of Jamaica
- Employees of NAH & Health Services Co-operative Credit Union
- The spouses, children, nieces, nephews, brothers, sisters, and all other relatives of the above.
This signals the expansion of our Credit Union and our new name is now NAJ & Health Services Co-operative Credit Union Limited.
The NAJ & Health Services Co-operative Credit Union is committed to the promotion of thrift among its members, the provision of sound financial advice and assistance offered through a wide range of financial services, delivered by a highly efficient and motivated staff; committed to excellence.
