The purpose of the Credit Union is to promote and encourage good financial management among its members and by the accumulation of savings create for themselves a source of credit at a fair and reasonable rate of interest. Saving shares in a credit union is a better way to save. You are not just another customer but an active member of a highly successful financial co-operative. You have a share in the ownership of the credit union and a say in the operation of the credit union. You may also earn dividends on any shares in your account.
