Jannou and 1st National partner on innovative Debit Card

The Jannou Credit Union has partnered with 1st National Bank in introducing a debit card for members of the credit union.

A signing ceremony took place Tuesday October 6th 2020 with roll-out of the debit card expected within weeks.

The Jannou Credit Union President Junia Emmanuel-Belizaire says the partnership with 1st National Bank allows the debit card to be used at the bank’s multiple locations islandwide.

Managing Director of 1st National Bank, Johnathan Johannes says the timing could not have been more perfect with the many inconveniences of COVID-19.

Mr. Johannes highlighted the significance of local financial institutions working together in the interest of St. Lucians and their desire to be truly independent.

Machines accommodating the new debit cards will be installed at the credit union within weeks. The debit cards bearing both the Jannou Credit Union and 1st National Bank logos will be issued to members by November 2020.
