Important Information:

  • The amount you can borrow with the Saver Matched Loan is dependent upon the savings in your Adult Member Savings Account that you wish to use as security.
  • Just Credit Union encourages members to save as they borrow.  If you want to take out a loan we will agree an affordable repayment plan and add a small sum which will be saved, so as you repay your loan you continue to save.
