WHY BECOME A MEMBER?

Joining CroydonPlus is a great way to start managing your finances, by saving regularly and providing access to loans you can afford to repay.

A credit union is based on local people helping each other. One person’s savings is loaned to another member. The interest the borrower pays goes back into the credit union for the benefit of members.

        We have no external shareholders or Fat Cats – and only members can be Board directors.

        We encourage all our members to save something every month, however small.

        We won’t let you borrow more than you can afford

        We won’t charge you exorbitant interest rates and there are no hidden charges.

At its very heart, CroydonPlus Credit Union works tirelessly to encourage the people in our community to take control of their finances, to save some money for those unexpected or hoped for items and to borrow money responsibly.
