From benefits to business – a member’s story
When Jemma Burbridge joined London Capital Credit Union in early 2010 she was struggling for money. Having separated from her partner, she was reliant on benefits to support her and her two young kids but, with help from London Capital Credit Union, Jemma is now running her own business.

Jemma explains: “I needed a small loan to tide me over, but the bank wouldn’t help me. I was shocked at the interest rates offered to me by doorstep lenders and others, so started to look on the internet where I discovered London Capital Credit Union.

“The credit union was able to help me when I needed a loan to make ends meet. The ‘Saver Loan’ scheme was the perfect idea for me as it got me saving for the first time, with part of each repayment of the loan allocated to my own savings account.”

Jemma says she would highly recommend the credit union as a way of borrowing at times when you need to.

“I had a loan to start my own business organising hair pamper parties for children. The credit union helped me through the rough times and get to the position where I am now able to run my own business.”

More information about Jemma’s business organising children’s parties can be found on Facebook/JemsTinySparkles or by emailing jemma_burbridge@yahoo.com.
