“The credit union is there for people like us”


Help and support is not always forthcoming for people working hard to set up a small business. When bookkeeper Miss Hodgkiss of South Staffordshire asked for a bit of help with a major purchase, she drew a blank - until someone recommended Wolverhampton City Credit Union. She made an appointment with WCCU’s Lisa Summers who is based at the Civic Centre, and in a short space of time, she had secured a loan to buy new carpets to keep her home warm in the winter.

“You’re absolutely fantastic,” said Miss Hodgkiss who runs the business with her partner. “You’re a knight in shining armour, I can’t speak highly enough about the credit union.” Keen to avoid the high interest lenders, Miss Hodgkiss has returned to the credit union for loans for other big purchases including a washing machine and flooring. The mother of two said: “There’s not a lot of help out there for people who are working or, like us, setting up a new business. It’s tough to make a living these days and bring up a family. So it’s great to know the credit union is there for people like us.” And applying for the loan was an unusually pleasant experience. “Lisa was lovely, warm and friendly. The credit union’s a place you can rely on.”

Last year, the credit union issued over 3,400 loans and plans to lend more to members this year, including larger loans for eligible members to make big purchases like cars. Instant top-up loans are also available to all members who have paid at least £200 off their balance since they last topped up and the total loan balance is below £1000.
