Self-Help Credit Union, through Carolina Mountains Credit Union (its new, full-service retail division), now offers a wide range of fair and equitable financial services in Western North Carolina. The existence of our branch at 1911 Hendersonville Road, Asheville means that there is a local credit union that is also a CDFI (community development financial institution), where making a deposit or opening an account of any kind can have significant impact and value in your local community. Membership in this credit union is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Buncombe, Henderson, Transylvania, Jackson, Haywood, and/or Polk County.
One of the unique products offered by Self-Help/CMCU is the Green Certificate of Deposit. When you invest in a federally-insured Environmental Certificate of Deposit (CD) from Self-Help Credit Union, you will earn a market-rate return while your deposit goes towards environmentally responsible ends, such as funding loans for environmental nonprofits and “green” businesses. Self-Help has to-date deployed more than $64 million in financing for environmentally-focused entrepreneurs and projects. And Self-Help’s Energy Loan Fund, coming soon to WNC, provides financing, at a low interest rate, for energy efficiency and renewable energy improvements to commercial building owners, nonprofits, charter schools and small businesses.
