Can I borrow against my own money?

Yes. Share secured loans are essentially a way for you to borrow, using your own savings as the collateral. Instead of using all your savings to make a purchase and losing your safety net, you borrow against that sum while your money stays in your account.

How does a Share-Secure loan work?

The amount of the loan is limited to the amount of money on deposit within the account. The credit union will place a hold on the amount you want to borrow against.

Will a Secured loan build credit?

Yes. These loans are reported to the credit reporting agencies. If timely payments are made, it may have a positive result on your credit score.
