Fulfilling the Anchor Mission and Building Community Wealth: Local Credit Unions Leverage their Assets to Build Strong Communities

Latino Community Credit Union

This case study profiles how the Latino Community Credit Union (LCCU), based in Durham, North Carolina, partners with anchor institutions to invest locally and build community wealth. Local anchors like Duke University, the Museum of Life and Science, and the cooperatively owned Weaver Street Market have made deposits with LCCU, which in turn expands access to affordable financial products and loans.
