CU System
Neighborhood CU partners with Mexican Consulate
DALLAS (4/13/10)--Neighborhood CU has launched a partnership with the Mexican Consulate in Dallas to serve thousands of Hispanics in North Texas who often lack access to mainstream financial institutions. The $250 million asset, Dallas-based credit union announced on its website that it is the only Dallas credit union partner in the consulate's "Directo a Mexico" program. In the program, the credit union will open savings and checking accounts, and provide secure, affordable wire services to any financial institution in Mexico to North Texans who present either a Mexican passport or Matricular Consular card. Chet Kimmell, president/CEO of Neighborhood CU, pointed out that "longer-term benefits are possible when someone opens a savings and checking account and begins to build a more solid financial foundation for the future."
