John - City of Edinburgh Council

John is working for the City of Edinburgh Council.

"I was recommended by a work colleague at Edinburgh Council to join Capital Credit Union.

It's a non-profit company, letting people borrow with very low interest.

I can build my savings and also borrow, enabling others who are not so well off, getting a loan.

I would highly recommend anyone to start saving with Capital Credit Union. You save at least £15 a month and you can borrow what’s affordable for you. The great thing is that you continue to meet your regular savings at the same time as you repay a loan, which builds up a nest egg for when the loan is paid back."
