Western Chamber Credit Union - WESCCU 

One of the challenges the Sekondi – Takoradi Chamber has faced over the years of its existence has been the need to address the financial needs of its members. Small firms continue to experience difficulty accessing adequate finance from formal external sources, notwithstanding many and varied institutional and policy initiatives introduced to address this seemingly perennial problem. 

In its quest to bridge the gap in lending to SMEs and also to inculcate the habit of individual and institutional savings, the Western Chamber Co-operative Credit Union (WESCCU) was established. WESCCU is a financial co-operative set up, owned and controlled by members. WESCCU provides the platform to build a self-help capital to not only start a business but also  to expand an existing one. This is not withstanding the development of the individuals within the Chamber and WESCCU community at large.

Since its establishment in 2010, WESCCU has served the wider need of savings and great value loans as well as tasking itself to educate members on the wise management of their  finances and encourage financial literacy.

Unlike other Credit Unions, a member of WESCCU stand to benefit from all the interventions of the Chamber like the business advisory services, networking, matchmaking etc, and that makes WESCCU different from all other Credit Unions. Membership to this Credit Union is opened to SMEs(both within and outside the Chamber),staff of Companies,trade associations,individuals,entrepreneurs and students.

WESCCU Currently operates two branches,ie,The Takoradi Branch and the Elubo Branch. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to join and save with the Western Chamber Co-operative Credit Union. Be assured of diverse financial products to meet your unique needs.
