Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” (Matthew 13:31-32) When Nicky’s washing machine broke down, she didn’t know where she was going to get the money for a new one. A friend told her about a new credit union that had opened up in the area, so Nicky went along and applied for a loan. She couldn’t believe it when she was accepted. This was a turning point. Nicky is now saving for the first time in her life and loves to watch her savings grow. She says: "People like me can't get a loan anywhere else, but the credit union trusts you and that feels good." "It [the credit union] has definitely changed my life. I used to feel terrible about money, but now I feel so hopeful." You’ve helped many more people like Nicky have a brighter future, full of hope, now able to take control of their finances. Thank you for donating.
