‘The Christian Cooperative Credit Union Ltd. Dhaka’ well-known as ‘Dhaka Credit’ was established by a Holy Cross Father, Charles J. Young in 1955 with a noble vision & a few objectives to provide Christian people of Dhaka an easy access to financial services to bring about positive changes in their financial hardships. In the beginning it was a small organization with only 50 members & a poor amount of share capital.

Products: In the very beginning, Dhaka Credit focused on providing loan service among its members for their productive purposes based on collected share. As time flies, the demand of the time has been changed. Considering members’ extended need, Dhaka Credit has designed various kinds of savings & loan products. At present this organization is offering 15 savings & 31 loan products to meet up wide range of members’ demand. Savings products are designed to accumulate capital as to utilize by the members in forms of loan to make their life economically sustainable. All savings products have been designed to help build larger capital so they can utilize the capital to help make their life sustainable economically.

Size of Membership: Dhaka Credit is a membership-based organization which pays high priority to its members. Though this organization started its journey with only 50 founding members, now it has become one of the largest cooperative institutions, not only in Bangladesh but also in South Asia having 38,347 members as of August 2017 (male 21,042 & female 17,305) & the number of savings account holders is 50,230 (Male 28,453 & Female 21,777).

Operational Areas: In the beginning activities of Dhaka Credit were limited within the Dhaka Metropolitan City, which has now expanded to four districts such as Dhaka, Gazipur, Munshiganj & Narayanganj.

Leadership: The current leadership, 22-member managing committee, has been heading the organization having taken diverse economical, social, cultural, health & human development programs offering different products, projects & innovative initiatives.  

Future Dreams: Dhaka Credit looks forward with some future dreams. For instance, to construct a hospital named Devine Mercy General Hospital to ensure health benefit to our members & common people of the country. For this, consultants & contractors are in the process of recruitment. After the design & planning, the construction of this hospital building will be started very soon.

At a larger campus in Mothbari under Gazipur district, a Medical College & Hospital with Nursing Training Institute will be built after the Devine Mercy General Hospital is completed & experience is gathered here. Necessary land has already been procured for this purpose.
Dhaka Credit has already launched online TV (dctvbd.com) to telecast live events, news & views of our Cooperative societies to connect all our members residing at different parts of the world. But dream is to start a full professional TV channel. 
Daily Newspaper: Its soft version is on the run in an online news service form (www.dcnewsbd.com). Its dream is to run a full professional newspaper along with the soft version.
