Point West Credit Union is Helping to Promote Financial Education for Mexican Community

PORTLAND, OR -- Point West Credit Union and the Consulate of Mexico in Portland are proud to announce a new partnership to promote financial education to the Mexican community in the Portland metro area. The partnership was formalized at a signing ceremony at the Consulate of Mexico on Wednesday, January 25th.

Point West will offer workshops and assistance in Spanish on a variety of relevant financial issues, including credit, budgeting, savings and more, working with the Consulate and its team to provide comprehensive support and solutions for its clients and their families.

"We are excited to add a credit union to the financial inclusion programs we offer to our nationals", said Francisco Maass-Peña, Consul of Mexico in Portland, "Having this type of financial institution as partner will provide a wider variety of information about banking services that will help the community to better integrate to the economy of this country".

"Regardless of a persons' citizenship status, they are a citizen of Point West," said Amy Nelson, President/CEO of Point West. "We are thrilled to work with the Consulate to support their mission and clients, and we will continue to educate, provide access, and be a point of opportunity for every member of our community."

Point West offers a variety of financial empowerment solutions for underserved communities, including microenterprise business lending, bilingual services, and lending to non-citizens with the same rates and terms offered to all its members.
