Hispanic/Latino

 

  • El Poder es TuyoTM   - A Spanish-language personal finance Web site for Hispanic credit union members and potential members. "El Poder es Tuyo" translates to "The Power is Yours" in English.

 

  • WOCCU's  "Reaching the Hispanic Market through Remittances" - WOCCU presents best practices and guiding principles based on the experience of three credit unions in Iowa implementing remittance based community outreach activities in partnership with Coopera Consulting. More than a year after the completion of the short-term credit union remittance outreach program, all three credit unions continue to reach the Hispanic community, affirming their commitment to use remittances as a vehicle for membership growth among the Hispanic community.

 

 

 

 

  • Focus group - the Needs of a Growing Latino Population (Manitowoc)

 

In 2006, CUNA surveyed credit unions to measure their level of interest in serving the Hispanic market. The results are useful and thought-provoking.

 

Many credit unions in the United States already use matricula identification cards to open financial accounts for non-U.S. citizens, providing a safe alternative for Mexican nationals who otherwise would be forced to use expensive payday and predatory lenders for check-cashing and remittance services.
