The Credit Union – Imagine More.
Why? Imagine a Different Kind of Lender
Imagine – A straight-forward loan, with no sneaky conditions.
Credit unions offer flexible Christmas loans of all sizes. You can pay off your loan early or increase your repayments, all without any scary penalties.
Imagine – A loan from a lender at the heart of your community.
Credit unions are not-for-profit and owned by our members, the people who save with us and borrow from us. All decisions are taken at local level, in the best interest of all our members.
Imagine – A loan with built in insurance, at no cost to you.
This is designed to pay off a loan in the event of a borrower’s death – subject to terms, conditions and eligibility criteria.
