More and more people take great pride in supporting their local communities. For example, what's on their plate isn't as important as how it got there. Most people, foodies or not, want to know if their meal came from a local farm, bakery or business. Local usually equates to better, fresher, healthier. Not just for you but also for your community. Same scenario for retailers. Made in America carries more weight with consumers than made overseas. This also holds true and can be carried over to credit unions.
All the financial products and services you enjoy from a credit union are created and shared locally. The deposits you make go to help lend money to your neighbor, friend, or family member looking to buy a car, buy a home, or start a business. The interest they pay on that loan goes back to you in the form of better rates on your investments, so you too can accomplish a goal or a dream.
In turn, a credit union is led by volunteers within the community. People who live near you and are like you. They make the decisions, not outside shareholders. Everything a credit union does circulates and supports its members. And these credit union leaders try to make themselves known in your community, by serving you in the branches, participating in local events, and sponsoring local charities.
So the next time you want to know where your money comes from or where it's going, take pride in knowing its coming and going locally thanks to the decision you made to become a member of Avadian Credit Union.
