A Credit Union Loan has some very special features:

  • Loans are insured at no direct cost to the eligible member
  • No hidden fees or transaction charges
  • Very reasonable interest rates
  • Repayments calculated on the reducing balance of the loan & this means smaller interest repayments as you repay your loan
  • Repayment terms to suit your particular circumstances
  • You can repay the loan earlier with no penalty
  • Additional lump sum repayments accepted with no penalty
  • Flexibility to make larger repayments than agreed with no penalty

How much does a Credit Union loan cost?

Malahide Credit Union can provide you with details of current interest rates. However, by law, a credit union cannot charge more than 1% per month on the reducing balance of your loan. That means a €1,000 loan repaid monthly, over one year will only cost you a maximum interest payment of €65.96. Normally there are no fees or transaction charges. Check out our public Loan Calculator for a loan that suits you.

Because credit unions represent the members who save and borrow with them, you’ll find your credit union is very flexible. Your credit union can help you choose a repayment plan which suits you. If your circumstances change and you want to alter your repayment plan, your credit union is there to help. It’s also worth remembering that you can repay your loan in full, at any time, without any penalty or additional charge.
