Loans

More and more people are finding it increasingly difficult to borrow small amounts of money from high street financial institutions and that’s where First Choice Credit Union can help. We can offer loans for up to £15,000 to help with that small or large purchase, subject to eligibility at a fair, affordable rate with no application fees. You must be a member of the Credit Union to be eligible to apply for a loan.
