Your donations and social investments (below-market rate CDs) go a long way in our community! Opportunities Inc. develops funding sources so Opportunities Credit Union can provide affordable loans to Vermonters. From minority-owned business loans to assistive device loans, we make our communities stronger.
Opportunities Credit Union creates wealth and promotes economic development by bringing affordable capital and financial services to low-income and other traditionally underserved populations. Our impact this year, as of July 31, shows how well we have been achieving this mission.
