If you just need to borrow money for a brief time and don't want to use money from your savings, LGFCU has personal loan options to meet that need.
Share Secured Loans
You don't always have to use your savings when you need funds for a short term. Consider the LGFCU Share Secured Loan. This loan allows you to borrow money and use your Share Account as collateral.
I've been a member of LGFCU for 28 years. I really appreciate how the Credit Union has low interest rates for credit cards and personal loans."
