At the Local Level
At the local level are CREDIT UNIONS, the backbone of the system. All credit unions are created by members pooling their resources, thus offering the opportunity for individuals to work toward financial self sufficiency.
- In Montana we have 57 “regular” credit unions with more than 100 branches located in various towns around the state.
- We also have one corporate credit union based in Helena. A corporate credit union is, essentially, a credit union for credit unions.
