Louisiana Federal Credit Union has been voted Best Credit Union in Tangipahoa Parish by readers of The Daily Star for the third year in a row.
The Daily Star's annual "Best of Tangipahoa" contest encourages its reader base to nominate businesses in the region that offer exceptional quality service. Those that receive the most nominations move on to a public voting phase. On August 31, The Daily Star announced Louisiana FCU as the winner of the "Credit Union" category after the publication received a record 104,016 votes.
Latasha Hebert, Lauren Baham, Kaitlin Clouatre and Linda Boe stand outside of Louisiana FCU’s Hammond branch to mark the credit union’s third consecutive “Best Credit Union in Tangipahoa” honor.
“What an honor it is to be voted ‘Best Credit Union’ by the Tangipahoa community three years in a row,” said Rhonda Hotard, President/CEO of Louisiana FCU. “Our members are the focus of everything we do. We care about who they are, and where they dream of going. This recognition reflects our commitment to serving our members and giving back to the community.”
In 2018, Louisiana FCU saved its members more than $5.3 million dollars. The credit union also supports more than 30 community-focused organizations, charities, and events through volunteering and contributions.
Here's what members are saying about Louisiana FCU.
"Louisiana FCU helped me make my dream of opening a Sweet Rolls become a reality. Other banks looked at me like ‘How are you going to do this? You don’t know what you’re doing.’ They didn’t have any faith in me. Louisiana FCU viewed me as an entrepreneur and helped me every step of the way.”
- Janah, Owner of Sweet Rolls Slidell
"Louisiana FCU is always reliable. They help get me what I need and treat me like family."
- Monica, Member
“Any need I have, Louisiana FCU takes care of it. Their customer service is number one.”
- Nicholas, Member
"Our loan experience with Louisiana FCU exceeded the already high expectation we had. Whenever we had a question about anything, they always had the answer. It was such a relief to know we were in great hands and would HIGHLY recommend Louisiana FCU to anyone for the first-time home buyer program, or any loan for that matter!”
- Taylor and Danielle, First-time home buyers
"I love my credit union. They are personable. They know me.”
- Misty, Member
