Inclusiv announces the largest expansion of the Juntos Avanzamos credit union network since the program went national three years ago. Since January of this year, 11 credit unions, including Guardians Credit Union in Florida, have received the prestigious Juntos Avanzamos designation. This new group of Juntos Avanzamos credit unions brings affordable, relevant, bi-cultural and bilingual services to over 418,000 consumers in six states, and expands the Juntos Avanzamos presence to the state of Idaho.
Juntos Avanzamos designated credit unions provide services to almost 6 million consumers through a network of more than 700 branches in many states.
Inclusiv and its Juntos Avanzamos League partners, the Cornerstone Credit Union League, the California and Nevada Credit Union League, the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates, the New York Credit Union Association and the Northwest Credit Union Association, welcome Alive Credit Union, Cy-Fair Credit Union, Guardians Credit Union, Icon Credit Union, MPS Credit Union, Pasadena Service Federal Credit Union, Premier America Credit Union, Rocket Federal Credit Union, Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union, Tucoemas Federal Credit Union and TTCU Federal Credit Union to our growing network of institutions committed to meeting the needs of Hispanic and immigrant consumers and their adoption of the Juntos Avanzamos framework of financial inclusion.
Guardians Credit Union celebrated its Proclamations during the first half of 2019.
“Florida is known for having a diverse culture and a large Hispanic population. The three Florida credit unions who have received their Juntos Avanzamos designations this year are helping to lead the way to inclusive financial services in our state. We commend Alive Credit Union, Guardians Credit Union and MPS Credit Union on this wonderful accomplishment” said Jordan Burroughs, director of membership relations at the LSCU.
The growth of Juntos Avanzamos underlines the increased awareness within our movement about the importance of financial inclusion and the key role Hispanics and immigrants play in the nation’s economy. With the addition of these credit unions, the Juntos Avanzamos network has substantially expanded its reach and capacity to impact the Hispanic and immigrant communities in the United States.
