Alternatives to Predatory Products - Through investment and product development, Inclusiv supports CDCUs’ provision of safe and affordable alternatives to payday loans.
Homeownership - Inclusiv’s homeownership initiatives aim to increase community development credit unions’ recognition as a source of responsible mortgage financing and to expand credit unions’ capacity as mortgage lenders.
Financial Capability - Inclusiv helps credit unions develop the right strategies and approaches to build the financial capability of their members.
Microfinance - Inclusiv has worked with credit unions to develop and promote small dollar consumer and business loans that can, for example, provide alternatives to payday loans or help build bridges to citizenship for immigrants.
