What is a Credit Union?
A Credit Union is a financial co-operative, owned and run by its members who all have one thing in common, which is the common bond.

Five Wells Credit Union's (FWCU) common bond is that you must live or work within the Borough of Wellingborough. This means everyone in Wellingborough has access to the low cost savings and loan facility scheme. It encourages members to save, thereby creating a fund from which loans can be made. The beauty of it is that your savings keep on growing. The more you save, the greater your borrowing potential.

How Does a Credit Union Work?
Members can save as little as £1 per week or £5 a month and after 13 weeks become eligible for a loan. There is no minimum loan and Interest is charged at just 1% per month on your outstanding balance (equivalent to 12.7%APR).
