    Nusenda Credit Union

    Contact Name: Robin Brule
    Phone Number: 505-889-2527
    Category: CDFI
    Website: http://www.nusenda.org

    Services Offered:

    In additional to traditional financial services, Nusenda Credit Union is committed to seeking out new and innovative programs and services that meet the needs of our member owners, community members, and community partners. Examples of this philosophy include Co-Op Capital and our Financial Capability Curriculum. Co-Op Capital is an innovative financial product offered through Nusenda that changes how low-income entrepreneurs secure capital by establishing new access points and changing the roles of lender and borrower. Nusenda works with trusted member organizations, such as associations or co-ops, to offer microloans to low-income entrepreneurs or those who have difficulty accessing traditional or alternative lending. The program has been highly successful in its launch phase and is positioned to expand. Nusenda Credit Union has taken an innovative and collaborative approach to providing financial capability, training, and workshops for community and non-profit organizations. Nusenda’s financial capability philosophy is to integrate and embed financial capability into existing programming to make it more robust, rather than adding new and more programs. Integrating financial capability into existing systems increases the potential for sustainability, deeper impact, and lasting partnerships.


    Since its beginning in 1936, Nusenda Credit Union has operated under a fundamental principle: do well, so that we can do good. This principle has fueled the credit union’s growth from its nine founding members to more than 160,000 member-owners. Nusenda Credit Union believes that giving means more than just writing a check. Our financial and non-monetary contributions are shared with our partner organizations and nonprofits to strengthen and support the needs of the communities where our members live and work. Our unique approach to philanthropy incorporates the “Power of WE” as our members help guide our investments toward five focus areas: Education, Healthcare, the Arts, Environment and Wildlife, Community Services and Support. Nusenda Credit Union has been recognized locally and nationally for the innovative nature of the programs we have created. This commitment to community is focused on improving financial outcomes for our member-owners, our employer group partners, and the larger community.
