Credit unions began on a premise: People could help each other, they could cooperate – you help me, and I’ll help you. They thought that by doing so, they could create pools of credit from which to draw in order to improve their lives. With banks, people were just customers, consumers of a product or service, a means to a profit. But with credit unions they were active owners and participants in not only helping themselves but also their neighbors.
