Interest on Loans

“Truth in Lending”, with no hidden costs is the policy of the Credit Union movement.

We do not charge fees or transaction costs.

Our Credit Union does not penalise borrowers for repaying loans in a shorter time than planned. This facilitates Members to take greater control of their own finances.

Planning and Managing

Our Credit Union is flexible regarding repayment plans, although there are some legal limitations to length and amount of loans.

The member will be advised on the best repayment plan to meet their own circumstances. Members are generally advised to repay a loan in as short a time as possible.

Should a member experience difficulties in meeting repayment commitments he/she should immediately contact the Credit Union. All issues of this nature will be treated sympathetically and in confidence.
