Why save?

Why is getting into the habit of saving such a good idea?  There are much more interesting things to do with your money than locking it away.

Putting aside money is an important first step in planning for the future.  Once you have got into the habit of saving then you will be prepared for when you need to take out a loan for the bigger things in life.

We at the Community Savings & Loans encourage you to get into the habit of saving by putting some money away each month, however small.

As a reward you will receive a dividend (an equal share in our profits),  a free whole life insurance policy, have a say in how we run the company, and become eligible to take out a loan.
