Ashley Loan Team
Story #1
When applying for a small personal loan, a member of our lending team noticed Member had two vehicle loans financed at other financial institutions.  By refinancing them at the credit union we were able to save Member over $12,000 in interest and cut their interest rates from 28% to 9.99% and 17% to 9.99%.  So we not only helped the member out with their personal loan needs, but helped save them money and time over the life of their other loans.
Story #2
At account opening Ashley reviewed a new member's credit report with them.  In doing so, she looked at the member's current auto loan.  The member was paying 23.5% APR vs our rate which could have been 9.99% APR and they owed almost $8000 more than it was worth.  Giving them two loan options we were able to finance the vehicle and save them almost $100 per month in payments and they no longer owe the sub prime lender!

Story #3
Member came to us with almost $30,000 in credit card debt.  Had they continued to pay their six cards at their minimum payment, they would have paid almost $47,000 in interest and it would have taken them between 16 & 21 years to pay them in full.  With a debt consolidation we saved them almost $42,000 in interest and they will be paid in full in 3.5 years.  6 months after the loan was taken out, we ran their credit report to see where they were and their score had increased by 50 points, they had 99% capacity available, and their unsecured debt ratio went from 57% to 40%!

Story #4
Members needed a new vehicle.  With limited credit, collections, and not long job history they felt they did not qualify.  Our Fresh Start Auto Program was a perfect fit for this couple.  With our program we were able to get them their vehicle, while added security on the loan with the GPS tracker.  With the payment amount they requested they were able to pay the vehicle off in less than two years.  They have since taken out several loans and referred others to the credit union.  
Story #5
In refinancing a members auto loan we were able to consolidate their debt of four credit cards totaling around $19,000.  They are saving over $200 each month on their payments and will have all the debt paid off in 3 years or less.  Without paying off those credit cards they would continue to pay on them for years to come at a much higher interest rate then what were able to give them.
