The Federation supports CDCUs through technical assistance, consulting services, and programs like Borrow and Save.Borrow and Save logo TM

Borrow and Save

For many low wealth wage-earners, bridging the gap between paychecks and the cost of living is a challenge often met by increasing consumer debt, typically through credit cards and sometimes through alternative lenders.

The Federation’s Borrow and Save program is designed to help borrowers break the cycle of borrowing from high-cost alternative lenders and move towards healthier savings habits.
