What Others Say
For almost 40 years, we’ve helped thousands of our members make the most of money. But don’t just take our word for it.
I applied for a loan . Firstly the online application was very easy and straight forward. The application was process earlier than stated. I can categorically say the service I received was exceptional.
Brilliant organisation. Their loan application process is thorough but straightforward. You also save whilst borrowing too. And their APR rates are competitive compared to big banks. I’ve been using them for years. No complaints whatsoever.
I didnt expect to be helped so quickly and efficiently. Thank you all so much for your understanding that not everyone is savvy doing things on their phones.
Thank you also for your patience in dealing with my case..
I was impressed by speedy responses. Beautiful follow up emails made me feel this Credit Union truly appreciated having me as a member- that I was important to them. Thanks LMCU, God bless you..
Having never applied for a loan before, I was anxious doing this for the first time particularly as this was for a significant sum. The team at LMCU have been fantastic, putting my mind at ease from the start and keeping me updated daily (Monday to Friday) on the status of my application.
A very easy step by step process to follow. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a brilliant loan with very low interest rates.
