For people who find that traditional lenders won’t offer them credit, for whatever reason, it can seem that high-interest, payday and doorstep lenders - and even illegal loan sharks - are the only options.
At Barrow & District Credit Union, we do things differently. We have a range of loan products for every section of our community and we assess all loan applications based on
affordability. People borrow from us for exactly the same reasons that they borrow from any other lender: for those unexpected expenses such as when the fridge or the washing machine breaks or to buy a new car, carry out home improvements or to go on holiday.
