How a Juntos Avanzamos Credit Union Helped Me
“I joined a Juntos Avanzamos credit union just a few months after arriving in the U.S. from Cuba. At the time, I was struggling to manage the costs of buying a new car, so my friends referred me to Cooperative Federal. By becoming a member, I was able to get a loan, straighten out my family’s finances and enroll in a program with my wife that is helping both of us build our credit. Cooperative Federal’s Loan Processor, Carlos, worked with my family to help us get back on our feet and better understand the U.S. financial system. Now we have a lot of options for saving our money. Carlos saved our life!”– Eduardo, Cooperative Federal member in Syracuse, NY
