    Thanks for your comments and interest!

  4. I am so incredibly proud and impressed to be part of a cooperative movement that puts PEOPLE first!

  5. Guadalupe CU has been a God send to myself as well as my family members. They are helpful, courteous and always willing to assist. Mortgage rates, auto, etc.are low and affordable. You want an honest CU, open an account with Guadalupe CU. You wont regret it. ;o)

  6. What great stories! I love my credit union!

  7. I agree with Pamela about Guadalupe Credit Union being a God send. When other banks and credit unions would not give me the time of day to help me re-build my credit, Guadalupe CU allowed me an opportunity to prove myself and through that it has really helped me in re-establishing my credit and credibility. Thank you so much Loretta and Nestor!!!

  8. Saundra Marie Ramirez is very sincere, she has my vote! Vote for Saundra!

  9. I vote for Robin Pharo. Her business has been doing great things in Wisconsin. Summit Credit Union has been a wonderful credit union for me to use for loans as well as checking and savings. When I have forgotten to transfer funds to cover a check, they have called me to ask about it so I could make the transfer necessary.

    My web page does not have a place to vote that I can see so this is my vote.

  10. I would like to vote for Robin Pharo.

  11. I vote for Oscar Rivera – Guadalupe Credit Union!!!!!
