unstar this property answer text <p>The Government is supportive of credit unions and has taken a number of steps to assist them, most recently including:</p><ul><li>The Department for Work and Pensions investment of up to £38 million in an expansion project for credit unions. The project aims to help credit unions expand and grow, enabling them to provide financial services to more people.</li><li>From 1 April this year the Government increased the cap on the maximum interest rate a credit union can charge for loans from 2% to 3% per month. This will allow credit unions to make more loans to their members without making a loss. Even if they choose to charge the higher rate of interest the cost of borrowing from a credit union will still be significantly cheaper than many high cost lenders.</li></ul><p>The Government intends that these measures will help the credit union sector go from strength to strength, so it can be a viable option for financial services provision for an even wider range of consumers.</p> more like this

With its preferred creditor status, lending to the IMF is one of the most credit-worthy institutions in the world and no-one who has ever provided money to the IMF has ever lost that money.</p> more like this
