Testimonial by Jeff Ishii, a Maui County FCU Member

October 7, 2021

My mom and pops were Maui County Federal Credit Union members (and still are), so I opened an account and applied for a car loan. My parents had to cosign the loan, but I was able to get my first car, a 1991 Integra.

Members Matter: Zeke Kalua Shares His Story

April 1, 2021
Becoming a member at the Maui County Federal Credit Union back in 2013 was like finding a light in a dark tunnel. I almost suffered from a PTSD associated from financial institutions. I banked with some of the more popular ones, that never came to my aid when I needed them the most. I never lived a lavish lifestyle and was always conservative with my spending habits, but there were many times that life threw me a curve ball and I needed a financial life line.
