MACU Helps Idaho Woman Get Her Finances Back on Track

Credit unions live their “People Helping People” mission every day. Sometimes that means helping a member improve their credit score, finance a home, or create a solid retirement plan. Other times it means lending a helping hand during some of life’s most difficult moments.

That’s exactly what happened when a Caldwell, Idaho widow found herself in a dire financial situation after losing her husband unexpectedly.

Check out this great member story from Mountain America Credit Union:

Nadene’s husband had always loved the 1957 Chevy — the classic lines, stand-out detailing and engine that purrs like a kitten. When he turned 57, they agreed the time was right to buy the dream car. Unfortunately, in just a few short months, Nadene was a widow — and deep in debt.

She found out about the state of their finances just before she lost her husband. He told her to sell the car to pay everything off. But, when it came down to it, she just couldn’t part with it. 

A friend recommended that she investigate refinancing her mortgage. Nadene went straight to Mountain America and was so impressed with how she was treated and how fast and easy the whole process was that she even recommended this option to her daughter.

Watch the heartwarming video below.
