CWFCU Celebrates One Year of Operations!

CWFCU officially celebrated its grand opening in September of 2014. Since then, we have been working hard to serve our members and the community by providing a safe environment to build savings and an affordable alternative to high-cost loans. To date we have opened 375 memberships and closed 112 loans, totaling $618,000. Based on these impressive numbers, we have exceeded our goals for our first year of operations! 

Our loans have helped our members consolidate high-interest loans, putting money back in their pocket and back into the local economy. In addition to saving money, our loans help our members build their credit! Our loans are more than just a loan, we want to provide a longterm financial solution. 

Thanks to all of our members and staff who have made this year possible and successful. We look forward to many more successful years serving the Greenville community!

If you are interested in joining the great work we are doing, we encourage you to become a member of our credit union. You can learn more here.
