A CREDIT UNION is leading an effort to toss a financial lifeline to Barbadian students struggling to fund their tertiary education.

The Barbados Workers’ Union Co-operative Credit Union is teaming up with the Credit Union League to introduce a Registered Education Saving Product (RESP) by yearend.
