Officials with TFCU announced its partnership with Inclusiv, a leading credit union resource for financial inclusion and community development to help low-income communities achieve lasting financial independence through credit unions.
In partnership with Inclusiv, TFCU is expanding access to financially vulnerable or formerly excluded communities by bringing financial literacy classes, personalized counseling, and affordable account access 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 purpose of community development and individual enrichment,” said TFCU President and CEO Max Villaronga.
“Inclusiv and TFCU have a great deal of common purpose in helping Americans of 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 closing the gaps and removing barriers to financial opportunities for distressed and underserved
“By working with community members to find the right tools for where they are now, and where they hope to move in their financial lives, this partnership will create the catalyst for improving all of El Paso County and beyond,” officials added.
