Share-Secured Loans

A share-secured loan is a way to use your own money that is in your savings account at the CU to obtain a loan at the credit union.

  • The money in your account serves as a pledge or as collateral for the loan.
  • The rate for this loan is 5.00% APR above our current declared dividend rate for the regular share savings account.
  • This type of loan is a way to help establish or repair credit and sometimes we ask for a $100 pledge for a $100 share-secured line-of-credit when a member has limited or no credit history.
  • Oftentimes, members were going to spend their savings for a purchase, but instead obtain a share-secured loan to ensure that they keep their savings intact and prefer to make monthly loan payments at a very affordable rate.

"I joined the credit union because my bank was starting to charge fees for different transactions and setting a minimum amount on how much you had to have in your account. I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth was and support local businesses. So, I opened a checking and saving account with the credit union. In 2004, I got a mortgage with them - which they helped me stay on top of when I was laid off for a short period. I have direct deposit there for work and I did open up a line of credit there many years ago; I don't use it often but it's nice to know it’s there in case I do need it. People at the credit union dress differently, they don't wear suits and they're down to earth. When I go there, it's friendly and welcoming. I like the brickwork and the fact that they have local artwork on the walls. Most of my friends already bank there."
