Shares (Saving) Accounts

By putting a little aside on a regular basis you not only have something to look forward to, but also something to fall back on, should the need arise. Saving in a Credit Union is a better way to save. You are not just another customer but an active member of a highly successful financial co-operative. Each member holds a share in the ownership of the Credit Union, and along with having a say in the operation of the Credit Union,you could also earn dividends on every share held.
