CDCUs are nonprofit organizations with a tax-exempt status. These credit unions are typically owned and managed by its members but are also regulated by the government.

Community Development Credit Unions are capable of offering a wide selection of benefits to its members. Usually, some of the most notable benefits are as follows:

a) The ability to provide fairly priced loans to members who have limited or no credit history.

b) The ability to help its members in the process of saving money.

c) The ability to conduct financial transactions at reasonable costs.

d) The ability to provide financial counseling and education to all of its members.

e) The ability to assist its member during the process of proving services which will potentially help them shy away from high-cost loans, and simultaneously gain more control over their finances.

In cases where banks and other commercial institutions can no longer help, small businesses can turn to CDCUs for financial assistance.

In general, CDCUs are great instruments for providing financial lifelines to low income individuals and communities who wish to gain financial stability and gain traction in the business community.
