The credit union has supported me for 16 years helping with various holidays from Cornwall to New Zealand. They have helped my family through tough times and lots of good times. Thank you for all you do.


The credit union has been of great help to our family. We both started saving when we were working but at some point in time my husband lost his job when I gave birth to our son. I was on maternity leave, things were so difficult  and we had outstanding loans. The credit union was good with us to come on a payment plan until the loan was paid off. We have been able to secure additional loans for years from the credit union even on just benefits.

"I will advise anyone to save through the credit union because they are able the lend you even on small income if only you will be able to make the monthly repayment. The banks will never lend to people like us but the credit union did and their interest is also small. Thank you very much for everything. We have been able to achieve much with your help. We are very grateful and we will always be.

Both myself & my husband save with the credit union, we both use the online banking & find this very valuable. We only found out about SCVO through our work place.It is so convenient as our savings come straight off of our wage & sent to SCVO from our Employer, both of us have had a loan from SCVO & the interest rates make it so easy for you to pay it off quickly and easily. My only complaint is I wish I had known about it years before I did.


I have appreciated the support from this Credit Union over the years I have been a member.  I know I will probably rely on your support in the future.
