The Marigot Cooperative Credit Union is reporting a decrease in its operational surplus by 14 percent when compared to 2019.
Facing loan delinquency as a consequence of the Covid 19 pandemic, the credit union’s president Valentine Telemacque says members have been affected by the loss of jobs, which in turn has resulted in a lack of loan payments.
At the end of 2020, Telemacque says the credit union’s income was three million 3 hundred and 91 thousand 641 dollars.
He says prevention and mitigation against the spreading virus is becoming an expensive and increasing burden on society.
