Credit Unions

What is a Credit Union?

A Credit Union is a profit sharing, democratically run financial co-operative which offers convenient savings and low interest loans to its members.

The members own and manage their credit union themselves.

The three main aims of a Credit Union are: 

  • To encourage its members to save regularly.
  • To provide loans to members at very low rates of interest.
  • To provide members with help and support on managing their financial affairs (if required).
