Your members are using payday lending services. If you are not providing a safe alternative, where are they going?
CUALS is the Better Alternative
Credit unions used to be the place to go for small dollar, short-term loans. Unfortunately, over the years, the costs associated with underwriting and offering these loans became cost prohibitive. Today, credit unions nationwide now enjoy a modern solution — XtraCash, brought to you by Credit Union Alternative Lending Solutions (CUALS). A short-term lending CUSO, CUALS is a 100% risk-free payday-lending alternative, which also serves as a non-interest income generator. CUALS partners with credit unions to uniquely offer lower cost loans and to encourage financial education to their FOMs.
We Partner with Credit Unions to Serve their Underserved Members
CUALS is a proud member of INFiN.
INFiN is the national organization with a mission to serve as the voice of the vital and rapidly evolving consumer financial services industry in a thriving, competitive marketplace, and to advocate on behalf of customers who choose and value these convenient, reliable, and transparent products and services for financial inclusion and stability.
The fees for the CUALS XtraCash loans vary by state depending on local regulations. There are also different rate options available depending on the level of participation of the Credit Union and the source of the payment.
Safe and Secure
By partnering with CUALS, you gain the safety and security of working with a CUSO-owned short-term lending alternative. It’s always more efficient and economical for your credit union to collaborate with a CUSO; allowing you to offer financial products and services on a cooperative basis. We utilize one of the leading short-term lending transaction systems in the United States.
On its own, a credit union might find short-term lending to members cost prohibitive, but with the CUALS XtraCash loan you are provided the service Free of Charge. CUALS clients receive the support of a complete local marketing package, also at no charge.
The CUALS program is a web-based system, which allows you access to the program 24/7. The program offers a complete turn-key operation providing web-based software, underwriting, collections, servicing and training. CUALS incurs any associated loan loss.
