Hope Credit Union Expands into Southwest Little Rock

LITTLE ROCK, AR – Hope Enterprise Corporation and Hope Credit Union (HOPE) celebrated the grand opening of its newest location at 8411 Interstate 30 in Southwest Little Rock on Thursday, June 2. The new full service location expands on HOPE’s existing presence, a program office housing a commercial lender since 2006 and a branch in College Station since 2008, and offers area residents access to checking and savings accounts, auto loans and credit cards, mortgages and small business loans. Anyone who supports the mission of HOPE, to improve the quality of life for low-income and low-wealth individuals in the Mid South, may join the credit union to take advantage of the benefits of membership. “We are excited to open our newest branch in Southwest Little Rock, a diverse and growing community filled with opportunity,” said HOPE CEO Bill Bynum. “We are grateful to our long time partners the Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, NeighborWorks® America and Regions Bank for their ongoing generosity and support to make this day possible.” Since 2008, HOPE has expanded from 7 to 27 locations – many of which are located in communities where few affordable banking options exist. HOPE serves 30,000 members, one out of three of whom were unbanked when they joined. Through July 31, 2016, HOPE will feature special offers to help make it more affordable for people to become members. The credit union will waive the monthly fee on all checking accounts for six months and the application fee on personal loans. HOPE offers checking and savings accounts, consumer and mortgage loans and commercial lending services. The Little Rock branch is open Monday – Thursday 9am – 4pm and Friday 9am – 6pm.
