The Londonderry Chamber of Commerce has congratulated Derry Credit Union of the issuing of its one millionth loan.
Chamber President Gavin Killeen said:
"Derry Credit Union is one of the foundations of our local economy. It not only provides loans to its members to buy important goods, but it also provides interest of savings and supports local people who want to save. The Credit Union has provided much support for Small Businesses and has often been the first port of call when traditional lenders were reluctant or slow to respond to requests. We warmly congratulate Derry Credit Union in issuing its one millionth loan - the first credit union in Ireland to do so. The Chamber of Commerce hopes it will issue many, many more loans for many, many more years to come. We are very proud that Derry has arguably the best credit union in Ireland!"
