About Us

Penilee Credit Union is a not-for-profit savings and loans organisation that was founded in 1986 by people in the Penilee area to provide low cost, affordable loans to the local community. We are run by a Board of Directors who are volunteers and manage the overall governance of the credit union.

Our team is made up of 3 staff members who work in our branch including our branch manager who is responsible for the day to day running of our organisation. We also have two administrative team members and a number of volunteers who assist our staff as tellers.
