OUR CREDIT UNION INITIATIVE
WHAT IS A CREDIT UNION?
A credit union is a member (customer) owned financial cooperative that…
Offers financial services at competitive and fair rates
Provides member communities access to affordable, reliable and self-sustainable financial services
Is democratically controlled by its members
Operates as a not-for-profit organization
WHY A CREDIT UNION IN OUR COMMUNITY?
Credit unions inherently operate to promote the well-being of their members. Profits made by credit unions are returned back to members in the form of reduced fees, higher savings rates and lower loan rates.
South Fulton is a vibrant community and could be a real source of wealth for it’s residents and their heirs. Our community would be even more stable and prosperous if more of us better understood how money works and how to make what we have work harder for us.
