What is a Credit Union?

A credit union is a group of people who save together and lend to each other at a fair and reasonable rate of interest. Credit unions offer members the chance to have control over their own finances by making their own savings work for them. Regular savings form a common pool of money, which in turn provides many benefits for members.

Every credit union is owned by the members — the people who save and borrow with it — People like you.

What are the benefits of a Credit Union?

A credit union is an organisation of people - for people. It exists only to serve its members - not to profit from their needs.

One of the main reasons people use their credit union is to save money. So why is it important to save? Saving means not spending your money today so you can buy something even better later.

So instead of spending your pocket money today, you might want to save it so that you can buy something you want even more, like a bicycle or a new computer game, at some time in the future.
