Tralee Credit Union, Marketing and Business Development Manager, Suzanne Ennis said that it’s an expensive time of year with a huge financial burden placed on students and their families.

Easing Financial Pressure

“While our education awards don’t solve the problem they do go a long way towards easing the financial pressure,” she added.

“We offer an easy and quick, online application process on our website. All you have to do is visit our site at through the link below and fill in your details and you could be one of seven lucky, randomly selected winning members.

“For those who need a loan we have a very low Student Loan Rate available to both students and their parents.

“We also have a low rate Saver’s Loan for parents who have saved up for college to give them the option to ‘Spend it or Save It’ on loans of €5,000 or more.

Easier to Repay

“Most people find it easier to repay a loan than it is to save – so they borrow on the strength of their savings.

“With our saver’s loan they still have their savings at the end of the loan plus they have the flexibility of knowing that they can repay their loan anytime without penalty. They also have the peace of mind of free life cover on both their loans and their savings with our Loan Protection and Life Savings Insurance,” said Ms. Ennis.
