In 2013, Shambhala Credit Union established a risk-based lending program for all lending products.
Loan Officers rely on the carefully developed risk-based tiered interest rate matrix to guide loan decisions and determine the loan rate for each application. Our desire is to acknowledge our most credit worthy members while maintaining the willingness to assist members who may have weaker qualifications.
Historically we have had excellent success approving high-risk applications where other institutions may have hesitated to lend a helping hand. In this way Shambhala Credit Union has consistently worked with the underserved, usually low-income members.
