Loans and Credit Cards
One of the primary functions of the credit union is the provision of loans to members from the savings pool created by fellow members. At Freedom Credit Union, loan finance charges are computed using “simple interest” – that is, finance charges are assessed on the unpaid balance of a loan for the number of days outstanding.
Freedom uses the “4 C’s” to determine an applicant’s credit worthiness. These “4 C’s” ensure the credit union will grant good quality loans while protecting the member deposits with which loans are funded.
1) The Character of the applicant,
2) The Credit history of the applicant,
3) The Capacity of the applicant to repay the money loaned, and
4) The Conditions under which the loan is requested – both economic and applicant related.
Loan payments may be made conveniently via automatic transfers from a deposit account, and there are no loan prepayment penalties. Click on Current Rates to view Freedom’s current lending rates. Freedom Credit Union offers several loan types:
