Many people still view the Credit Union as old fashioned when trying to apply for a loan. With banking fees continuously on the rise and adding up in the long term unknowingly. People seem to forget the small things the Credit Union offer that the banks don’t, for example: flexible repayment options, no banking fees and no penalty for early repayment of the loan balance.
On top of that we say yes to over 95% of loan applications, so if you are thinking of borrowing from another financial institution, we say don’t BANK on it.
We will go into more detail later in this article, but first you are probably thinking ‘everybody says how great their loans are, but how do you actually apply for a loan?
