CLEVR Money is about people, not profit.

We’re proud to help our members achieve financial security.

Our mission

The primary objective of CLEVR Money is to promote sound financial management by encouraging responsible savings and giving access to affordable low-cost credit.

Our Loans require that members begin saving alongside their loan repayments, so as the loan is paid off, the member accumulates savings.

Over time members can build up savings and end the cycle of borrowing.

CLEVR Money also offers a range of information and support for members in financial difficulties or with a poor credit history.

About credit unions

Credit Unions are financial co-operatives, owned and controlled by their members, offering a friendly  service to their members.

Anyone who saves with the Credit Union will automatically become a member of the co-operative, and their savings can be withdrawn upon request. Any member can also apply to borrow from the pool of money formed by the members’ savings.
