Why I Joined - Olatunde Ojo

Olatunde Ojo joined the Credit Union after a work colleague recommended us to him as a more ethical place to save.

Olatunde works for a large company called Veolia Environmental Services, one of the hundreds of companies that provide staff across the UK with the opportunity to have savings or loan payments deducted directly from salary.

He is an unsung hero, working often unsocial hours in all weathers trying to keep the streets of London clean. He first joined the Credit Union in April 2012 and we asked him why, and what he thinks of being a member.

“I was looking for a place to save and a workmate recommended the credit union as more fair and ethical. Not long after joining I found I needed a loan and found out that the Credit Union ‘Saver Loan’ was much cheaper than the High Street Banks.

“Since then I have always used the Credit Union at any time that I’ve needed to borrow. In particular, they really helped me out when I needed to pay for my parents’ funerals, and at the time no one else would lend me the money.

Not only are the ‘Saver Loans’ cheaper but I’m steadily building up my savings for the future. I know that one day I won’t need to borrow as I now have a tidy and growing sum of savings.

“Over the years I’ve recommended the credit union to many of my friends and family. The friendly yet professional service of the staff and volunteers is the thing I like most and the online service is simple to use. I also know that if needed I can always top-up my loan, or even pay it off early without penalty.”
