The Credit Union Advantage vs. Banks

It’s a simple concept, “people over profit.” Credit unions were created during the Great Depression, a time of economic chaos, when people were unable to get loans from over-leveraged banks. As a result, people banded together to pool their resources and help one another. While the world has changed, the core value of credit unions—people helping people—remains stronger than ever today.
