At last women will be able to apply for loans without having a male co-signer, which is required at banks and savings and loan associationsü Furthermore, they can be honest about WHY they want a loan, whether it be for a vacation, an abortion, a truck or a divorce.

This is because it is WOMEN who cannot get loans now. Women are needed to help staff the credit union, especially those with bookeeping experience.
