Affordable Financing for Immigration Services
Ascentra Credit Union has partnered with area providers of low-cost immigration services to offer affordable financing for services such as:
- Adjustment of status
- Family-based petitions
- Naturalization and more.
The Newcomers Initiative is a program that allows individuals to finance these costs and establishing or improve their credit score while introducing many to mainstream financial services provided by a trusted financial institution.
Watch this powerful testimonial from one of the first participants of this program.
Ascentra has been able to provide these services at the low interest rate of 3.15% APR* by leveraging generous grant opportunities. This program also provides financial education opportunities for all participants.
