  • London Capital Credit Union
    About The Credit Union
    The Credit Union is a not for profit co-operative dedicated to promoting saving and dealing with debt. Established in 1997 it provides savings and loans for anyone living or working or studying in Barnet or Camden or City of London or Hackney or Haringey or Islington.
     
    Credit Union Services
    Anyone who saves with the credit union becomes a member of the co-operative and can use one of several savings/budgeting accounts open to them. Savings can be withdrawn within 3 working days upon demand. The savings form a pool of money held in trust. Any member can apply to borrow from this pool of money. Because it is largely volunteer run and has no outside shareholders it can offer low cost and flexible loans to its members. The credit union promotes sound financial management by encouraging people to save rather than borrow. Unlike other financial institutions there is no minimum savings level, unless you take a loan, and no minimum loan value.
