Black Owned Credit Unions You Should Know

Black banks get all the love but what about Black-owned credit unions? They are also important and in some ways, a better option than a bank.

When you open an account at a bank, you’re a customer. When you deposit money in a credit union account, you’re both a customer and an owner. The credit union uses the money that you and other members deposit to make loans to other credit union members, much like a bank.

Since a credit union’s main goal is to serve their members, they take the money that would have been profit and instead use it to help credit union members. Credit unions often do this by offering better rates on savings products and lower interest rates on loan products.
