Sicredi Visitors

The Texas Workforce Credit Union was proud to host the visitors from SICREDI on Monday, Sept. 14. As part of an initiative between the World Council of Credit Unions, Cornerstone Credit Union League, and SICREDI—a prominent financial cooperative in Brazil—the 12 executives will spend several weeks with various credit unions in the region learning about the U.S. credit union system.

Texas Workforce Credit Union, a full-service institution with 800 members and assets of nearly $10 million, was one of the San Antonio hosts. Mary Dunagan, the credit union's president, said, "Thanks to the World Council of Credit Unions and Cornerstone Credit Union League for allowing us another year to host all the wonderful individuals from Brazil's SICREDI Youth Immersion Program. It was an honor to have met them, and we wish them all the best in their promising futures. We enjoyed every minute of this experience."

The 12 visiting SICREDI executives include: Andre Assis, David Conchon, Julio Cesar Reyes Jr, Fabiola Motta, Eneida Beckert, Adilson Felis de Sa, Luis Dickel, Luiz Kuhn, Edson Ferreira, Alexandre da Silveira, Mariana Ribeiro, and Wanderley Venzo.

SICREDI is one the major cooperative systems in Latin America, and is distributed in 10 Brazilian states. To fully meet needs of members, SICREDI credit cooperatives are structured regionally into offices and receive strategic and technical expertise of SICREDI Confederation, SICREDI Cooperative Bank, SICREDI Credit Foundation and their holding company, which is the entity responsible for determining among other things compliance ethics and audit policies. SICREDI has a unified brand, as well as standardized policies, procedures and bylaws. Despite their shared identity, every SICREDI cooperative is still a unique and local institution, just credit unions in the U.S.
