This month, HI-Scot, the credit union for the Highlands and Islands, will take part in a worldwide celebration of credit unions.
Thursday October 17 is International Credit Union Day 2019, a day which highlights the history and achievements of the movement, as well as raising the profile of the work of credit unions in local communities, reflected in this year’s theme: Local Service, Global Reach.
HI-Scot general manager David Mackay said: ‘HI-Scot has been working across the Highlands and Islands for 13 years and, in 2019, we have over three thousand members.’
‘In that time we have approved more than 4,000 loans. That’s a lot of money benefiting people in our communities.’
From its base in Stornoway, HI-Scot serves one of the largest geographical areas of any credit union in the UK. Membership is open to anyone living or working within the area.
Mr Mackay said that this month’s International Credit Union Day offered people throughout the Highlands and Islands a unique opportunity, saying: ‘It’s a good chance to get in touch or look us up online and see for yourself what HI-Scot, your local credit union, can do for you.’
