The Bakers Food and Allied Workers Credit Union (BFAWCU) is open to all members or employees of the Union. It gives members the opportunity as a group of people in a common bond to save together and lend to each other at a reasonable rate of interest. The BFAWCU offers members the chance to have control over their finances by making their own savings work for them. Regular savings form a common pool of money which in turn provides many benefits for members. The Credit Union exists only to serve its members, not to profit from them. It is non-sectarian, non-political and continues the tradition of co-operative self-help.
