Credit Union Schemes

Real nappies will save you money in the long run but it is money up front, a great way of avoiding this up front cost is to borrow from your local credit union. They supply low cost loans for any purpose and it’s a great way of buying all the real nappies you need without breaking the bank. Loans are repaid weekly or monthly whatever suits you best.

Cardiff Credit Union

To be eligible for a loan from the credit union you must live or work within the County Boroughs of Cardiff or the Vale of Glamorgan. There is no requirement to save with the Credit Union before the loan is taken out but you must save a little each week when repaying the loan. The cost of a typical £200 loan paid back over 12 months is £4.10 a week, this will be rounded up to £5, the extra 90p being put into a savings account.
