Credit Union (NMCU) hosted its first NMCU Borde St Pop-Up Market on 27th & 28th
October 2022 as part of the recent Credit Union Month 2022 celebration.
This idea came to fruition based on the 2022 theme for Credit Union Month “Empower Your Financial Future with a Credit Union”. Therefore, the credit union believed that this was the perfect venture to provide the opportunity for our members who are entrepreneurs to have a space to sell and showcase their products.
According to our Interim General Manager, Mr. Christopher Lewis, Credit Union month was about empowering the financial future of our membership. As such, the Pop-Up Market was the perfect way to encourage our members and provide opportunities for them to promote their products. In this way, our credit union is showing our commitment to our membership to assist them with securing their financial future.
Approximately twenty (20) members of the credit union participated in this event and the main focus was on products that were locally made in Trinidad and Tobago. Items on sale included pastries, loaves of bread, pepper sauce, pastelles, sorrel, ginger beer, jewelry, homemade wines, honey, coconut oil, body lotions, beeswax products, soaps, and handcrafted wooden items.
Our credit union has many talented members, and we were extremely happy to provide this opportunity to at the Pop-Up Market.
On behalf of the Board, Management, and Staff, we wish to express our gratitude not only to the members who participated in this event but also to the members who came out and supported it.
