How small loans can have a huge impact

first_imgThroughout life there are situations – life events – where money plays a significant role in the decision-making process, and a positive resolution is dependent on the availability of funds. In certain cases, where the resolution requires more money than what may be available, an already stressful situation can feel frustrating and overwhelming. But what if a financial institution knew their member personally, and was willing to take a look at special situations to see if they could lend a hand (or money) to assist that member? Take a chance on a member with a long standing history and make a difference to them? This is the embodiment of the Credit Union Difference.Credit unions have long prided themselves on having personalized relationships with their members, sharing affinities based on education, occupations and the community. Recently, some credit unions have been going above and beyond in their traditional lending practices when looking to meet some of their members’ financial needs. They have started offering smaller, more express and niche-type loans, often stemming from the needs within the community it serves. These smaller loans, while not typical, are creating positive results; building both loan portfolios and member appreciation and loyalty.A recent article from creditunions.com outlined some of the more unique lending strategies being offered to members at a growing list of credit unions. Lending strategies were implemented after a need was identified within their community and member base. Loans were granted for life events such as adoption, the path to citizenship, environmental initiatives, and to help meet the needs of a union worker just joining and learning their trade. Some CUs have even begun to offer an alternative for those dreaded payday loans, where the borrower usually has no viable alternatives and is stuck paying a huge amount of interest and fees. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Bundesliga: Leipzig hold leaders Bayern to stay point behind

first_img Bayern coach Hansi Flick expects this season’s title race to go to the wire. “The Bundesliga will be tense until the end,” he said. “There are a few teams with a chance. “We want to keep our position, but it’s going to be a hard path to stay on.” Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann said his side showed the bravery required to win in Munich. “In the second-half, we had much clearer chances to win the game,” he said. “We were brave, defended high up and had a good grip on the game.” – Werner’s huge miss – Loading… Read Also: Bundesliga: Can urges Dortmund to ‘win dirty’ after Leverkusen collapseWith 10 minutes left, Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi came to his side’s rescue with a stunning, diving save.The Hungarian did superbly well to deny Goretzka who had broken through the defence, but was left with his head in the hands as Gulacsi pushed the ball around the post.At the other end, Bayern’s Joshua Kimmich intercepted ex-Everton winger Ademola Lookman’s cross, meant for Werner, just before the final whistle.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Leipzig striker rues his missed chance with an hour gone at Munich’s Allianz Arena.Leipzig striker Timo Werner, who missed a golden opportunity on 63 minutes, rued his team’s missed chances, including a skied effort by captain Marcel Sabitzer.“In the beginning, it seemed just a matter of time before we scored,” admitted Werner.“But in the second half we played as our coach (Julian Nagelsmann) wanted and were the better team.

Leipzig worked tirelessly to thwart the hosts, for whom victory would have opened up a four-point gap after third-placed Borussia Dortmund’s 4-3 loss at Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. Mueller’s Bayern were held to a goalless draw Bayern are bidding to win an eighth straight league title. They were awarded a second-half penalty which was then reversed when VAR showed Robert Lewandowski had been offside. Second-placed Leipzig often rode their luck to repeatedly frustrate Bayern, but wasted a series of second-half chances themselves. “The problem was that both teams could live with a 0-0 draw,” admitted Bayern forward Thomas Mueller. “In the end, neither team wanted to take the absolute risks, which meant we didn’t play to our strengths.”Advertisement Promoted Content8 Best 1980s High Tech Gadgets7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Highest Paid Football Players In The World7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterBest Car Manufacturers In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Birds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parkslast_img read more

Ottawa Senators’ Anthony Duclair scores hat trick vs. Columbus, shows John Tortorella he ‘knows how to play’

first_imgAnthony Duclair picked the perfect day to score his first hat trick with the Ottawa Senators.The 24-year-old forward was dominant for the Sens on Saturday, scoring three of his team’s four goals to help Ottawa earn a 4-3 overtime win over the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets. Duclair notched a pair of goals in the first period before sealing the game in OT with a power-play marker. “I don’t think he knows how to play,” Tortorella said of Duclair on Feb. 19 — four days before the player was traded to Ottawa. “It seems to me he’s like a player that just feels he can get the puck because he’s tremendously skilled. He can skate. I just think he thinks he can do whatever the hell he wants to on the ice. He can’t do that in the National Hockey League.“Here we are on his fourth team with another coach pissing and moaning about him, scratching him, benching him. . . . For me right now he’s off the rails. I’m not so sure if we’re going to spend a lot more time trying to get him on the rails.”The Blue Jackets did not spend much more time trying to get Duclair back “on the rails,” but the subsequent change of scenery has done wonders for the sixth-year player. Scoring three goals against the coach that publicly ripped him 10 months ago is surely the cherry on top of what’s turning into a career year for Duclair. ANTHONY. DUCLAIR. HAT. TRICK.An @Enterprise hatty for @aduclair10 and a beauty at that. 👏👏 pic.twitter.com/mErAxKdWWv— NHL (@NHL) December 14, 2019Saturday’s performance pushed Duclair to 18 goals on the season, which leads the Senators through 33 games. He’s also his team’s points leader with 25, and is on pace to easily smash his career highs in goals and points (22 and 44, respectively).Needless to say, the Pointe-Claire, Que., native is having himself a very good year.MORE: Is Tortorella among the head coaches now on the hot seat?What makes Saturday’s hat trick performance extra special is the fact that it came against Columbus — his former team — and head coach John Tortorella. Duclair spent two-thirds of the 2018-19 campaign playing under Tortorella with the Blue Jackets, where their fiery coach was not shy about calling out the left winger for a perceived lack of effort.last_img read more
