Loans from Credit Unions

Getting a loan from a credit union is very different from getting one from a corporate bank. Since credit unions are nonprofit, they are essentially owned by their customers. Because of this fact, there are several advantages to members who choose to apply for a loan with their credit union.

Advantages and loan types are different at each credit union. To find out what you’re eligible for, contact VFCU at (956)546-3108 or (956) 425-5668. There are two very simple steps you must take to receive a loan.

  1. Become a member – In order to be eligible for a credit union loan, you must be a member first. Make sure you meet the criteria at the Harlingen credit union.
  2. Apply – Apply by calling your local credit union. Ask them about the types of loans they offer and let them know which one you’re interested in applying for.

Of course, you will have to share your credit score and prove that you’ll be able to pay back the loan in a timely manner. Having a co-signer helps as well. Contact the friendly team at Valley Federal Credit Union, Harlingen and Brownsville’s trusted credit union. Call us at (956)546-3108 or (956) 425-5668.
