Credit-Builder Loan

Building good credit can be difficult, especially with bad marks in your history. American United understands this, which is why we offer the credit-builder loan. Unlike other loans, where funds are disbursed up-front and repaid over time, the proceeds from a credit-builder loan are held by the credit union to secure the loan, until the loan has been paid in full. Since the loan is secured, almost all members are approved. You could say that a credit-builder loan is like a savings account that also builds your credit.
