Gateway Credit Union Membership & Self Employment

Gateway has hundreds of self-employed members, who work hard to make a living and serve local people. They include market traders, taxi drivers and hairdressers, mechanics, shopkeepers and florists, builders, consultants, trainers and even the odd accountant. They use the Credit Union to save in the good months and borrow for stock, vehicles, or personal and household spending. Some of them also use Gateway to save for tax bills, or big annual expenses. Gateway lends from £50 to £10,000 based on an individual assessment of your ability to repay, not just a credit score.  

Gateway Credit Union is your local savings and loans co-operative. They are  run by and for over 3500 local members. The Credit Union was started in Pontypool 18 years ago and now has members across Torfaen and Monmouthshire

Gateway Credit Union has offices in Pontypool and Cwmbran, so to discover more about these larger loans, pop in for a chat, give them a call on 01495 742500 or visit
