What is so different about a Credit Union loan?

Before taking out a loan of any kind, it’s worth taking the time to understand how lending works. That way you can compare the benefits and be aware of the risks.

–  Credit union interest rates are
   fair and reasonable and
   capped by law

–  Repayments are calculated at a
   daily rate on your reducing

   interest with each repayment

–  Once you are eligible for a

   conditions at no direct cost to
