The CPCU does an enormously worthwhile job supporting people who, for whatever reason, are struggling with their finances.  It doesn’t just provide flexible and cheap loans, but also offers many other services to help those with limited incomes manage the many demands on their money.  Anyone can support them by opening a savings account and also benefit from the competative loans they offer.  Largely staffed by volunteers, the CPCU not only gves all this assistance, but also keeps local money in the hands of local people, while combating the dangers of loan sharks.
