empathy

We feel for you. We know that we live in tough times, and we’ve got an institution
designed for these times. We care about you, and that’s not hype.

Some car loans are more than just transportation. When Irma Rivera had trouble with her van, it meant more than just an inconvenience. It meant that she would not be able to transport her daughter Brianna, disabled in a wheelchair. So getting a new van meant a great deal to this single-parent family.

“I have been a hair stylist in Redwood City since I was young,” said Irma. “And I deposited my very first paycheck from the salon with San Mateo Credit Union.” So when she needed new transportation, she knew who to call.

Funny how goodwill perpetuates itself, because now all of Irma’s nieces and nephews are members as well as her parents. “My brother is the only hold out,” said Irma. “But we’re working on him. Ha!”
