Personal Loans and Personal Lines of Credit

Gesa offers Personal Loans and Personal Lines of Credit for a variety of purposes. A Personal Loan is an unsecured signature loan and can be useful when you need a set amount of funds for a specific purpose. A Personal Line of Credit offers flexibility, allowing you to draw/repay funds up to a defined limit, giving you assurance that temporary cash flow problems won’t hinder your long-term goals.

Citizenship Loans

Credit unions were established on the premise of “People Helping People.” It is in that vein that Gesa offers Citizenship Loans. Many people are moving into the States, establishing residences, starting families, finding work and wanting to become American Citizens, but can’t afford the fees associated with this transition.

  • Borrow up to $1,000
  • Terms up to 12 months

Requirements:

  • Credit union membership
  • Applicant must live within 100 miles of a Gesa Credit Union Member Service Center
  • Must have a valid “Work Purpose Only” social security card 

Collateral is not required and no credit is needed to receive financing. You can even build credit! Once the loan is opened, a $680 check will be made payable to the Department of Homeland Security to cover the citizenship application fee.

When applying online: Select personal loan as the product and citizenship loan as the loan purpose. You can also apply at any local Member Service Center, by phone, or mail.
