1st Financial FCU Featured on Show Me St. Louis

Recently, 1st Financial Federal Credit Union hit the airwaves and shared the credit union difference with the St. Louis area. The news piece focused on how 1st Financial helps people—even those with bad credit—receive the financial services they need.

“Credit unions are not-for-profits that help members instead of maximizing profits,” says Heidi Glaus, reporter for KDSK and Show Me St. Louis.

Several 1st Financial employees explained how the credit union positively impacts the community—from using common sense underwriting to make sense of credit score dips to offering financial literacy.

“What many people don’t already know is that by being a member of a credit union you are investing in your community,” says Tracy Verner, brand ambassador for 1st Financial. “Credit unions have always cared more about people than big profits. We’ve always invested in our community.”
