Why do millions of people worldwide choose credit unions?
Because it is through credit unions that members can improve their communities and lives. As cooperative and democratic financial institutions, credit unions’ success depends on the success of their members and their community. Credit Unions share common interests with their members. This October 18, CUSafe.ie will join more than 89,000 credit unions from 117 countries and millions of members globally to celebrate the 70th anniversary of International Credit Union Day®.
Credit unions strive to make the world a better place for their members by offering loans at affordable rates and a high-quality service that simplify their lives and empower them to meet their financial goals.
CUsafe was developed in 2009 when we saw that Irish Credit Unions wanted to provide value based Insurance products for their members, but many found the compliance and staff workload involved made it difficult for them to do so. We were convinced that using the strong relationship members have with the Credit Union as leverage we would be in a strong position to negotiate discounts with quality providers on their behalf, and this was correct.
