Big Loan Sale - €3 Million in 3 Months
In an innovative move to stimulate the economy in the locale, Clonmel Credit Union has launched the “Big Loan Sale” offering its members access to discounted loans.
Clonmel Credit Union has set aside €3,000,000 to loan at the reduced rate of 4.99 per cent. The rate is available for a limited period of three months.
“The uptake of our loans covers a large range of financial needs,” said Pádraig Enright, CEO of Clonmel Credit Union.
“We provide home improvement loans, back-to-school support and car finance. Assisting members entering the mortgage market is important to us, but we never lose sight of the everyday needs of our members and pride ourselves on making positive decisions quickly and as often as possible. Within the last year, we approved 96 per cent of loan applications resulting in over 7,000 loans.”
Recently, the ECB announced an interest rate hike of 0.5%.
Despite the ECB increase, Clonmel Credit Union is not increasing rates. Clonmel Credit Union will celebrate its 60th anniversary next year.
While other financial institutions withdraw and reduce services from the Southeast, Clonmel Credit Union is doing the opposite by increasing services and choices for its customers. The role of the Credit Union is filling a much-needed gap in the market.
Since its establishment, Clonmel Credit Union has steadily expanded its range of services in response to the needs of members.
It now offers a wide range of financial products and services including current accounts, debit cards, personal and home improvement loans, special rate green loans, mortgages, Agri and small business loans.
“We have invested heavily in recent years to enable Clonmel Credit Union to offer our members, who are the owners of the Credit Union, comprehensive solutions to their financial needs.
“Paying bills and shopping with a phone is now the norm, and our members can apply for loans without even visiting our premises.
“Our current offering of loans at an incredible 4.99 per cent is proving very popular,” Pádraig continued.
The Clonmel Credit Union has launched an easy to use APP that allows members to apply for a loan, and receive loan documents and funds through the app without leaving the house.
They can also transfer funds to and from their credit union account.
In another positive development, they have just launched a new Youth Account providing second-level students from age 12 with full debit card functionality.
