TFCU officials announced their partnership with Inclusiv, a leading credit union resource for financial inclusion and community development to help low-income communities achieve sustainable financial independence through credit unions.
In partnership with Inclusiv, TFCU extends access to financially vulnerable or formerly excluded communities by providing financial literacy classes, personalized counseling and affordable access to accounts and loans to low-income households in El Paso County .
“TFCU’s new partnership with Inclusiv is another major step in our vision to prioritize diversity, inclusion and equity for the purposes of community development and individual enrichment,” said the President and CEO from TFCU, Max Villaronga.
“Inclusiv and TFCU have many common goals to help Americans with modest means achieve financial empowerment.”
Credit union officials add that predatory lenders undermine the financial and economic security of community development, borrowers and communities.
TFCU and Inclusiv are committed to filling the gaps and removing barriers to financial opportunities for those in need and underserved.
“By working with community members to find the right tools for where they are now and where they hope to grow in their financial lives, this partnership will create the catalyst to improve all of El Paso County and beyond,” said added officials.
