WHO WE ARE
What is a credit union?
A credit union is a financial co-operative organized, for the sole purpose of providing service to members.
What is the difference between credit unions and other financial institutions?
The difference is in the structure. Many financial institutions are owned by stockholders who seek to profit from their investment in the organization. Credit unions are owned co-operatively and are democratically controlled by all members without regard to the amount of money that a member has in the credit union.
Credit unions are directed by a Board which is a group of volunteers selected from within the membership. Credit Unions return profits to their members in the form of dividends, safe savings options and competitive loans, rates and services.
Credit unions do business with their members only.
