Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust Student Loan Program (BNECT)

Since 2009, the Belize Natural Energy Charitable Trust (BNECT) has partnered with credit unions countrywide in its National Student Loan Program. This Student Loan Program is therefore a partnership with local credit unions that started as a pilot initiative in April 2009 when the trust seeded an initial investment of $1 million dollars. This pilot has yielded loan facilities to over 600 Belizeans students pursuing secondary and tertiary education at local institutions throughout the country. In January 2014, the Board of the BNECT committed an additional $1.5 million dollars to expand the program and on February 3, 2014 an agreement was signed between BNECT and La Inmaculada Credit Union Limited for an additional $500,000 bringing the total investment to over $800,000.
