Loan Zone: Education program boosts member financial health and revenue

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Community development credit unions are mission-driven institutions that serve low-income, underserved communities across the country. Reflecting the needs of their members and communities, CDCUs specialize in high impact products like payday loan alternatives and credit-builder loans, as well as such key supportive services as financial counseling and education. Historically, these supportive services have been viewed as charitable activities and a cost center for financial institutions. However, new research conducted by Inclusiv, New York, and Neighborhood Trust Financial Partners, New York, has revealed that financial counseling can generate a positive return on investment for credit unions.Inclusiv and Neighborhood Trust conducted their research through Pathways to Financial Empowerment, a joint program launched in 2015 that combines technology-supported financial counseling with credit union products. The Pathways platform enables holistic and detailed impact analysis by combining data from multiple sources including credit report and score plus credit union account data.Clients served through the Pathways program are considered high-risk by mainstream financial services. They generally have low incomes, poor credit and high debt. Those clients who took out new loan products early in the program have a median income of only $28,000 and a median credit score under 600. However, as the research shows, by working one-on-one with members to improve their credit and financial health, financial counselors are able to convert these high-risk clients into excellent borrowers. continue reading »last_img read more

Paddy Power – Appeals Court to defy President Trump’s ‘Muslim’ travel ban

In short,  the Supreme Court could end up banning the ban on a ban.The bookmaker’s Spokesman Paddy Power commented on the market: “The Donald’s arguments to reinstate his ban is proving about as convincing as his attempts to reinstate his youth through his hair colour. Defeat here would be a clear hi-jab at Trump’s Presidency.”Will Appeals Court reinstate Trump’s travel ban?3/10       No9/4         YesAll Paddy Power Trump specials6/4         Trump to not complete his first term in office15/8       Trump to resign as President during his first term in office3/1         Supreme Court to overturn Appeals Court’s decision4/1         Impeachment proceedings against Trump to begin in 201716/1       To split from Melania this yearlast_img read more

NFL Week 5: Games, players, teams to watch

first_imgThe Saints are in a good position but a tough one this week.Heading into their matchup with the Buccaneers on Sunday, the Saints are 3-1 and have gone 2-0 with backup Teddy Bridgewater starting under center. But in that time, they have committed 11 holding penalties through four weeks, which is third in the NFL. New Orleans is the only team in the top four in the NFL in holding penalties that has a winning record. And this week the Saints have a serious challenge on their hands in pass blocking as NFL sack leader Shaquil Barrett (nine sacks) comes into town with the 2-2 Buccaneers fresh off of a win over the 3-1 Rams.While head coach Sean Payton did not discuss Barrett’s threat specifically, he as adamant that the Saints need to fix the holding issues on the offensive line.“I do not know coming into the year that any of us expected these numbers or expected a wholesale change quite honestly,” Payton said. “We spent a lot of time in the offseason discussing other topics. I think the challenge each week is understanding how the crew is calling it and that is the biggest thing as a league we need to improve on is the consistency from crew to crew. That being said, we need to reduce and understand how they are being called currently. We just finished meeting as a team going through some of the penalties. That part of it’s going to have to change for us offensively.”The Buccaneers could jump into a tie atop the NFC South with the Saints with a win Sunday.3 must-see NFL Week 5 gamesRams (3-1) at Seahawks (3-1), 8:20 p.m. ET, Thursday (Fox/NFL Network) — Even though Rams running back Todd Gurley called “Thursday Night Football” the “dumbest thing ever,” the matchup between the Rams and Seahawks may be the best of the week. These are two teams fighting for the NFC title who have three Super Bowl appearances between them since 2014. Pick a position battle and watch it. You can’t go wrong with any of them.Packers (3-1) at Cowboys (3-1), 4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday (Fox) — Both teams are coming off of their first loss of the season, but the Cowboys might feel worse about theirs. While they lost to a good team in the Saints, their offense looked terrible and they only scored 10 points. The Packers have wins over the Bears and Vikings already and barely fell to the Eagles in the waning moments. It looks like Green Bay is the better team right now, but an early-season matchup could tell us a whole lot about each organization.Browns (2-2) at 49ers (3-0), 8:20 p.m. ET, Monday (ESPN) — The Browns looked off in their first three games this season but really looked like they found their way in a win over the Ravens. But that success came by virtue of a superb performance from running back Nick Chubb. If Cleveland wants to go through him again it may have a challenge against the 49ers, who are sixth in the NFL allowing just 75 rushing yards per game. 2 players to watch in NFL Week 5Earl Thomas, S, Ravens — The Ravens defense looked wonderful through the first two weeks but terrible over the last two in losses to the Browns and Chiefs. This week Baltimore catches a rookie quarterback in Mason Rudolph with the Steelers. Thomas is the interception king. The Steelers have shown reluctance in opening up their offense for Rudolph and there’s little reason for them to against a ball hawk like Thomas. But if they decide to go deep, Thomas very well could find himself a takeaway.Chris Harris, CB, Broncos — The Chargers have the third-best passing offense in the NFL this season. The Broncos have the fifth-best pass defense. Harris may be matched up with Keenan Allen and that is a must-watch competition. The Broncos have been in all of their games this season. Denver’s secondary could be the reason they hang around vs. Los Angeles as well.1 bold NFL Week 5 predictionDaniel Jones moves to 3-0 — Daniel Jones hasn’t been fantastic, but he has won games. The Vikings are apologizing to each other on the radio. Saquon Barkley could be back. Minnesota has yet to look really good since Kirk Cousins took over last season. Jones has a great shot to move to 3-0.last_img read more
