It’s International Credit Union Day! Today’s the day we celebrate the spirit of the global credit union movement. We also had another reason to celebrate; it was the 70th Anniversary of International Credit Union day! This year, we thought of a great way to celebrate the good that credit unions around the world are doing; by hearing what our members have to say (yes, you). We asked you to send in some stories of how the credit union has helped you. From the responses, we’ve picked a few of our favourites:
“Joining the credit union has encouraged me to save. Savings bring me peace of mind, knowing I have some financial backup. I especially like the child benefit savings/loan scheme, it’s effortless saving and good to know a loan is possible should I need to pay for life’s unexpected surprises!”
“I have saving taken from my salary each month which is a great way to save I just email to withdraw and its in my account by the next day I love it”
“It has helped me pay part of my tuition fees for a course and helped me save to reduce my reliance on the overdraft”
“It helped me sort out my financial issues during difficult times”
“My credit union helps me have a peace of mind to know that I have a little something to help me and my family when needed. Thanks”
“Amazing way to save money and options to release funds is very easy and straightforward”
Hearing stories like this remind us of why we do what we do. Whether you just joined or have been with us from the beginning, thank you for being a member of CUBE Credit Union. Here’s to another 70 years!
