Brief History COK Sodality is the largest credit union in the English speaking Caribbean in terms of membership which comprise over 240,000 persons. COK has a bond that requires a belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. It is therefore able to serve members across the entire island through its 5 branches, a multi service call centre and 3 ATM's. COK also serves Jamaicans in North America, the UK, Grand Cayman and other parts of the Caribbean. The credit union also owns a remittance company and operates a Cambio.

This was the largest sum raised by a credit union from the market.
