PHOENIX (8/6/10)--Arizona Central CU, Phoenix, is offering a loan to help those affected by recent wildfires and flooding in the area. The credit union will offer a loan up to $1,500 with a 12-month repayment term and an annual percentage rate as low as 5.99%. The loan aims to serve as a temporary stop-gap to cover insurance deductibles and unexpected repair bills connected with the flooding and wildfires. Sindy Domek, Arizona Central’s Flagstaff branch manager, said she has spoken with several Flagstaff, Ariz.-area members who are struggling to pay for repairs and deductibles. “Dealing with the flooding and fires is bad enough,” she said. “Worrying about how to pay for it just adds to their stress levels.” Arizona Central CU has $410 million in assets.
