5 Reasons you should Join a Credit Union



      1. Credit Unions have been very successful in helping members to manage their personal finances by                providing regular educational programmes. These sessions help to guide and direct members on how to          use the resources to their best advantage.


2. Credit Unions exist to serve their members and communities. As not-for-profit Co-operative institutions, Credit Unions use excess earnings to offer members more affordable loans, a higher return on savings, lower fees or new products and services. They serve members from all walks of life, including the poor and disenfranchised.


3. Credit Unions promote the welfare of the community by creating a source of credit for the benefit of members at a fair and reasonable rate of interest.


4. When you join a Credit Union you become not only a member but also a part owner. You share in any surplus that is earned annually. Members choose from a wide range of financial services in a safe, convenient and friendly atmosphere.

5. Life insurance coverage is in place for members’ savings and loans from their Credit Unions, usually that is at no cost to the member.
