ABACO CU's Chairman of the Board Enrique Miyasato and Vice Chairman Miguel Hatada, National Federation of Credit Unions in Peru (FENACREP) CEO and World Council of Credit Union's (WOCCU) Board Treasurer Manuel Rabines, and WOCCU International Partnerships Manager Victor Corro recently visited credit unions in California.

The group met with various credit unions to learn about products and services, lending, credit scoring, marketing, collections, risk management, investments, branch management, shared branching, community outreach programs, and how the credit unions demonstrate and promote the credit union difference.

ABACO CU was established in 1981 and is the largest credit union in Peru. The credit union currently holds more than $69 million in assets and serves more than 6,200 members. It is interesting to note that ABACO CU's Enrique Miyasato and Miguel Hatada were born in Peru, but are of Japanese descent. In Peru, there is a large population of Peruvian Japanese who speak Spanish and Japanese. The international visitors requested to visit credit unions that serve predominantly Japanese Americans and a large credit union in the Torrance area that offers shared branching.

The following day, they visited Nikkei CU and met with CEO Erick Orellana and two Nikkei CU board members, Sho Matsumi and Byron Yoshida. The guests also attended Nikkei CU's annual meeting that evening, which had an overwhelming attendance of more than 400 Nikkei members.
