Pa Laide, CEO of Cara Credit Union said;“We know it’s an expensive time of year, with a huge financial burden placed on students and their families. While our education awards don’t solve the problem, they do go a long way towards easing the financial pressure.

“For students who need a loan we have a very low Student loan rate available to both students and their parents. We also have a low rate Saver’s Loan for parents who have saved up for college to give them the option to “spend it or save it” on loans of €5,000 or more.

“Most people find it easier to repay a loan than it is to save so they borrow on the strength of their savings. With our saver’s loan they still have their savings at the end of the loan plus they have the flexibility of knowing that they can repay their loan anytime without penalty and they have peace of mind of free life cover on both their loans and their savings with our Loan Protection and Life Savings Insurance”.
