About Us

What makes us different?

Local, ethical, member focused

We offer loans and savings exclusively available to people who live or work in Cambridge, Norfolk, Suffolk or for selected employers. Our aim is to improve the financial well-being of our member-owners by providing ethical, affordable services. Although the products we offer are similar to those you’d find at a bank – our ethos is very different. Every member has an equal say, and any cash surplus generated is given back to members as a dividend on savings or rebate in loan interest. We are here to help our members to afford their lives – not to make profit out of them.
