110 Credit Unions

Credit unions’ original main aim was to provide affordable finance to those who would struggle to obtain it from a high street lender, or who could only get weekly collected credit at extortionate interest. Nowadays they have expanded beyond this and UK credit unions now number close to 700 with 280,000 members, with £170m in assets.
