The main difference between credit unions and traditional banks is that credit unions are not-for-profit. This means that we exist to serve our communities in Houston, TX, and not to spin a profit for shareholders. Credit unions also tend to offer lower loan rates, higher earnings on deposits, fewer fees, and better customer service than traditional banks. 

Regardless of the type of business you own, a credit union could help you navigate what financing products are the best fit for your business needs and help you secure better offers.
