For People Instead of Profit

Whether you are considering joining the Louisiana USA family or have been a member for 30 years, you still may wonder, “What separates a credit union from a bank?” The short answer is – a lot. We are a nonprofit corporation that is equally owned by all of our members. Instead of focusing on our stock value and pleasing executive board members, we are entirely devoted to helping our members. Our team provides the same services as a bank, but our outlook and attitude could not be more different.
