Why choose a credit union infographic

Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that are owned by their members. They’re cooperative institutions in which members pool their resources to provide services to other members. Banks are for-profit organizations typically owned by shareholders. They provide financial services that will maximize profits for their shareholders.
