What Exactly Is a Credit Union?
In the most basic sense, a credit union is an institution that is administered by its members for the purpose of pooling together money from these very members. And rather than making a profit, the credit union gives that money back to its members in the form of better interest rates, lower fees, or higher dividend rates. It is a true cooperative.
