Southwest Louisiana Credit Union, formerly PPG Employees Credit Union, was started in 1952 by a few employees of PPG Industries with a common vision. That vision was to charter a Credit Union to benefit them and their fellow employees' financial needs. It was through these initial efforts that PPG Employees Credit Union was founded. With a small office located inside the production facility, the Credit Union began its mission of providing quality financial services to its members.
As always the cornerstone of our philosophy is "People helping people". To accomplish our purpose,SWLACU operates on the basis of these objectives:
Encourage thrift among the members, thus creating a pool of lendable funds.
Make member-loans at reasonable rates of interest.
Pay a fair rate of return on member-savings.
Provide members with an effective financial alternative.
