New Credit Union Focuses on Helping KC’s Disadvantaged Areas 

In Incentives and Loans, KC News by EDCKC Staff

A new credit union is dedicated to serving Kansas City’s East Side, where shortages of financial institutions and their investment tools have limited economic development. WeDevelopment will offer wealth-building tools and low-interest loans for home improvements.

When asked what makes this credit union different, CEO Gwen Washington said: “We’re not bank tellers. We’re financial advisors who want to share with you how we can help. We want to communicate the options we have, and how these options help us help you, and those who walk through the door behind you looking for loans at affordable rates, free checking, and higher savings rates; we operate to promote the well-being of our member-owners…. we truly have your interest at heart.”

Anyone who lives, works or worships in the East Side is eligible for membership with a small deposit. Check out WeDevelopment >>
