Yo, Listen Up! Puppet Rappers Tout CUs' Student Loans
NEW YORK (3/18/13)--The Muppets have captured the imagination of adults and children for decades. Now, cuStudentLoans, powered by LendKey, is hoping videos featuring "hip" Muppet-like characters and rap music will encourage college students to learn about credit unions and student loans.

LendKey is a CUNA Strategic Services provider.

cuStudentLoans' Squeaky Jams YouTube video series features a bear, Business Barry, and a squirrel, Squeaky, rapping to their puppet friends about real-world finance and how credit unions and student loans can help them meet everyday challenges.

Barry and Squeaky are more than entertainers. Among the issues addressed in the five-part series:

  • The difference between student loan consolidation and refinancing;
  • How to lower the interest rate on a student loan;
  • What to do if the student can't afford student loan payments; and
  • The benefits of credit unions.
