Being financially successful and social driven are inextricably intertwined. In order to demonstrate true corporate social responsibility, every financial entity must be able to evidence their contributions to all key stakeholders including employees, members and the wider community.
Member involvement, community commitment, positive economic impact and social change are just some of the key ways that credit unions differ from traditional banks who primarily focus on profit generation and other financial institutions. Credit unions re-invest their earnings to help members meet their financial goals.
Regardless of economic backgrounds, whether members are from villages or cities, in communities at peace or in conflict, credit unions are present across cultures and languages, helping members turn hopes and dreams into reality. With access to a safe, convenient place to save their money and secure affordable loans, LibertyCCU allows members from all walks of life the chance to realize their dreams and create new opportunities for themselves and their families, from starting micro-businesses to building homes and educating their children.
All credit unions share a common goal to offer access to affordable financial services to their members and provide even the most financially disadvantaged the access, the tools and the opportunities to be financially self-sufficient. In response to the challenges of the pandemic, LibertyCCU engaged its members employed in the tourism sector and linkage industries to ensure their ability to manage through this difficult period and offered payment deferrals to affected members. We offer loans at affordable rates to assist members in recovering and stabilizing their finances. We offer free financial advice to all our members. Instead of being driven by a bottom line, LibertyCCU focuses on our member growth and needs. This contributes to our mutual continued financial success and strength, thus keeping our focus on social mission.
