Historical Background:The first Feminist Federal Credit Union was established on August 26, 1973 in Detroit, Michigan. It was built on the self-help concept to be a place where women would pool their resources together so that those who were saving money could lend that money to their sisters who needed to borrow it. Soon after the Detroit office opened, numerous other credit unions were started in various cities nationwide including Lansing, Michigan and Ann Arbor, Michigan. In 1982, the Feminist Federal Credit Union decided to form a coalition with the University of Michigan Credit Union in hopes to offer more effective services, loans, and dividends to their members.
