Did you know that the first Credit Union in the United States was St. Mary’s Bank of Manchester? St. Mary’s Cooperative Credit Association (now named St. Mary’s Bank) was founded by French-speaking immigrants on November 24, 1908. Attorney Joseph Boivin managed the credit union, as a volunteer, out of his home in the evenings. America’s Credit Union Museum now occupies the location of Boivin’s home, where St. Mary’s Bank first operated.
Being able to save and manage money is just as important today as it was for immigrants who came to the US (and still do) looking for opportunities and financial freedom.
This is why Financial literacy is so important. Understanding how money works is key to reaching financial (and life) goals. Basic financial literacy can help students start on the right foot and avoid many costly mistakes.
