Credit unions are making a better world

Today, Thursday October 20, is International Credit Union Day, celebrating that for more than 150 years, credit unions worldwide have proudly put people before profits in order to provide access to affordable financial services for all members – and improve the lives of their members around the world.

"This year's theme, "Credit Unions Build a Better World," celebrates the important economic and social contributions credit unions make to their communities worldwide," said Abacus CEO Louise Petschler.

In addition to competitive loan rates and better customer service, members experience the difference that comes through in our democratic structure, our service to members, and the social goals that credit unions' ‘people-helping-people' philosophy supports.
