“When I got married in 1958, I didn’t have enough money to get married. So I took a loan from the co-operative. The second time I borrowed money was to buy a house. The third was when I wanted to return a $200 monthly special allowance which I received over 10 months from the NTUC, I borrowed $2,000 from the co-operative to pay back NTUC.” - Mr S R Nathan.
Credit Co-ops have helped many people, including Singapore's 6th President, Mr S R Nathan.
