MEMBER SPOTLIGHT STORY: BRIANNA G.
Brianna G. had fallen on hard financial times as a young adult and decided to come to SchoolsFirst FCU to see if we could help with decreasing her debt. With assistance from the team at the Costa Mesa Branch, she was approved for a personal loan to consolidate her high interest debt to a lower rate, and opened a Share-Secured credit card to help her rebuild her credit score. After responsibly using her card and making on-time payments, she increased her credit score by 75 points and upgraded to our Rewards credit card. "When the representative told me my credit score had increased by that much and congratulated me over the phone, I just started crying. It felt so good to have come so far and I have been so grateful for their help." She also loves sharing her experience with her friends and family about how SchoolsFirst FCU helped her grow and plan for a financially successful future.
"Recovering from financial hardship was hard when no other institution was willing to help me out. But SchoolsFirst FCU was here for me. It is like a family here with the Credit Union. Having your money here is the best thing you could do for your financial future."
