Who we are
A little about us
In short, we are a community-based credit union that provides saving accounts and loans to the people of South Manchester. We continuously look to support people’s finances and make a positive difference to their lives.
We are a responsible lender
Our credit union aims to promote responsible lending and borrowing. We look at loan applications with care and support our borrowers if they get into financial difficulties. Our mission is to support our community and we see it as a privilege to do so.
We surveyed our members to see how they would describe their credit union. The top 3 words were friendly, supportive, lifesaver. These three positive words describe us well and set a standard for us to live by.
