Are you looking to take a vacation, buy new furniture‚ make major car repairs or consolidate debt?
Whatever your reason for borrowing‚ a Louviers FCU personal loan is the answer. We offer three types of personal loans including a Share Secured Loan‚ a Signature Loan and a Line of Credit.
A Signature Loan requires only your signature as collateral for the loan. Signature loans are available for terms up to 5 years.
Open-End Line of Credit
Borrow up to $10‚000.00 with a Line of Credit Loan. Whenever you need funds‚ simply make a draw against the available credit limit. These loans require only your signature as collateral and are granted on the member’s ability to repay. A Line of Credit Loan is available for a maximum term of 60 months.
Share Secured Loan
With a Share Secured Loan, you may use the funds in your Savings Account and your Share Certificates as collateral for the amount borrowed. (Note: IRAs and Preferred Share Accounts cannot be used as collateral.) By pledging funds in an existing account as collateral‚ you will receive a reduced interest rate on the loan. For example‚ if you want to borrow money to take a vacation‚ you have two choices. One‚ you can take out a Signature Loan. This loan allows you to borrow money using just your signature — no collateral required, but the interest rate will be higher. Or, you can take out a Share Secured Loan‚ pledge funds in an existing account as collateral and receive a lower interest rate.
The funds you pledge as loan collateral are not available for withdrawal until you begin to make payments on your loan. Your funds will become available for withdrawal in direct accordance with the amount of principal paid.
Term lengths on your Share Secured Loan will vary based on your purpose of the loan and the amount you borrow.

Why is a credit score important?
Your credit score is more than just a number – it’s a way for lenders to determine whether you are eligible for a loan, the amount of the loan, interest rate, and your payment – important stuff when you are planning for your future.
What is Credit Sense?
Credit Sense is a comprehensive program designed to help you stay on top of your credit…. for FREE!
You’ll get your credit score, an understanding of the key factors that impact it, and access to special loan and credit card offers that can help you reduce interest costs. With this program, you’ll always know where you stand with your credit and where you can potentially save money.
This program will also monitor your credit report on a daily basis to help you keep an eye out for identity theft. You’ll be informed by email if any big changes are detected – a new account has been opened, a change in address or employment occurs, a delinquency has been reported, or an inquiry has been made.
How do I enroll?
It’s simple! Just log-in to your online banking and click on the credit score dial to the right hand side of your screen (see below). You’ll verify your social security number, answer a few quick enrollment questions and then you’re all set!
Once you have enrolled, you will also be able to access Credit Sense through our mobile app so you can check your score on the go!
With the passage of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003, consumers can get free copies of their credit reports from each major credit bureau once a year. Checking your credit reports on a regular basis is an opportunity to spot any fraudulent use of your name by identity thieves and correct any other inaccurate information.
