Are you a young adult looking to build credit? Or an adult look to repair your credit? This program might be for you.
Get a jumpstart on your credit and future by following the FAFCU Credit Builder 1-year Program. After meeting the initial membership requirements, you will be required to open a Share Account and overdraft line of credit. After 6 months, you can apply for a Visa Credit Card and once approved will be required to open a CD secured loan for $1,000 for 12 months. If you make all your payments and the secured loan is paid in full, then you will be able to use the funds as a down payment on a qualifying used vehicle loan.
