People in Leeds can now access ethical financial services in the heart of the city centre.
Leeds Credit Union’s ‘Your Loan Shop’, which has opened in the Merrion Centre, provides a wide range of affordable borrowing and savings opportunities.
The shop will also provide many of the other services of the credit union including credit union memberships.
Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, was among those in attendance for the opening. She said: “By bringing credit union provision to a busy retail environment it will help more people access low-cost, easy-access loans without the extortionate interest rates.”
