Origin of Community
Credit Cooperatives Started
from Gyeongsangnam-do in 1963

The origin of Community Credit Cooperatives in Korea started with five cooperatives established at Gyeongsangnam-do: Sanchung-gun Saengcho-myeon Hadoon-li, Changnyeong-gun Sungsan-myeon Wolgok-li, Uiryeong-gun Uiryeong-myeon Jungam-li, Uiryeong-myeon Oeshi-li, and Namhae-gun Masan-li

The early campaigns of CC were successful and developed our national tradition of cooperation spirit embodied in Gye(mutual aid), Dure(labor community) and Hyangyak(village agreement) based on the Antigonish Campaign in Canada after the members of Gyeonsangnam-do Local Office of National Restoration Campaign completed the 3rd training course for the instructors of cooperatives formed by the church member service group under Maryknoll Sisters and returned to their home villages.
