CONTRIBUTED: On Wednesday, August 10, 2022, St. Martin’s Credit Union Limited presented scholarships totaling $10,000.00 to students for the 2022-2023 academic year. This annual scholarship program is part of our contribution to the community and is awarded to the children of members in good standing. The scholarships were presented to students and parents by the Finance Officer, Mr. Leon Palacio, the Director of Education, Ms. Nelida Sabido and the General Manager, Mr. Raymond Michael Tzul. The students’ parents accompanied them during the short ceremony held at the San Ignacio branch.

Saint Martin’s Credit Union strongly supports the belief of investing in our youth to initiate positive change in the future and prosperity of our country. The scholarships are renewable each year until the students graduate. Congratulations are extended to each scholarship holder who wishes each student every success in their studies.

On Saturday August 13, 2022, Saint Martin’s Credit Union also conducted its first-ever school bag drive which provided 300 children with a school bag containing school supplies. The event took place in the parking lot of our offices in San Ignacio and Benque Viejo del Carmen. Parents wThey line up at 7 a.m. with their child to receive his schoolbags, books and writing supplies. This campaign is part of our giving back to the community and bags with supplies were given to children of members in good standing or any underage account holder.

Funding for these and other community activities is made possible through our Development Fund which is supplemented each year by profits made.
