Partnering with Credit Unions and CDFIs
We’ve been trading since 2015, working with Credit Unions and CDFIs in the UK to offer ethical and responsible financial products to near prime consumers.
To support the ambitions of our financial institutions we created and manage the Community Finance Network.
In 2018 we set up My Community Finance, a consumer facing brand and marketing platform, to generate leads and allocate loans to the Credit Unions and CDFIs in the Community Finance Network.
COMMUNITY FINANCE NETWORK
We formed the network together with ambitious ethical lenders with the aim to offer affordable credit to borrowers who are unable to access prime credit and run the risk of falling into the arms of high cost lenders.
My Community Bank
My Community Bank has grown out of a credit union called Brent Shrine Credit Union which was first formed in 1979 to serve people living or working in the London Borough of Brent. Since then, their common bond has extended a number of times to include members and supporters of a wide range of organisations and associations across the UK.
Castle Community Bank
Castle Community Bank was formed late in 2016 following the merger of two long established credit unions: Castle Credit Union and North Edinburgh Credit Union, who had been serving the communities of Craigmillar and North Edinburgh for over 30 years. Castle Community Bank now serve anyone who lives or works across most of Scotland.

We grow Credit Unions. We work with the boards and members of credit unions to deliver sustainable growth for their organisation and to improve the financial well-being of their members.
We also support the Credit Unions through the provision of capital to grow their lending books, and have opportunities for investors to make superior returns by investing in the Credit Unions' capital structures.
