Share Secured Loans
A Share Secured Loan is the least expensive way to borrow money. You are borrowing against your savings at ATFCU by pledging those funds toward your loan, while still earning dividends on the pledged amount.
A Certificate Secured Loan is similar with the pledged funds being invested in certificates of deposit at Abilene Teachers FCU. Interest continues to accrue on the CD’s while they are used as collateral.
A Credit Builder Loan is designed for those who have no credit history or those working to improve their credit score. The amount borrowed is held, untouched, in your savings account. You make payments for the designated loan term. When the loan is paid off, the proceeds are released to the borrower.
There are two options for credit builder loans:
- $500 for 12 months
- $1,000 for 18 months
