ABOUT THE FPS CREDIT UNION
The FPS Credit Union was established in July 1972 with their office in Suva. The first board chairman selected at the very first AGM was Mr. Edward Beci Waqairawai. The Credit Union was first established to provide for the welfare needs and a facility to save money for employees of the public sector. Within twenty years the FPS Credit Union completed construction of its investment property, the Credit Union Towers, situated on Gorrie Street and Gladstone Road, within a stone throw of the Government Buildings.
Today, the FPS Credit Union has over 4,000 members and over 25 full time staff to cater for the ever growing business and member needs of the organisation.
We pride ourselves as being the largest and most modern credit union in Fiji. Our state of the art member and finance application provided by Sterling Systems of Australia has enabled us to provide services to our members much more efficiently. Our members can access all of their account information and apply for our various services, including, personal loans through the online portal.
The FPS Credit Union is governed by a Board of Directors, selected by members at the Annual General Meeting. Our members also select members of the Credit Committee and the Supervisory Committee.
The operations of the Credit Union is managed by the General Manager who is supported by the Unit Managers and over 15 staff members.
We now have a state of the art computerised Savings and Loans System (SALS) which allows for quicker processing, easy reporting and most importantly, gives our members a very convenient avenue in keeping up to date on their accounts. Online registrations and applications etc. are all possible through this system giving us an edge over other credit unions.
M-PAISA FOR MEMBERS
