    What kinds of savings accounts do you offer?,
    And in case of deposit accounts how long before the savings can be retrieved?

      we offer three types of accounts, Savings, deposit, and shares which is further broken down into preference share.
      with the savings account, we help you make strong savings decisions thus withdrawal from this account is upon notification.
      The deposit account, on the other hand, is a current account where you can withdraw without notification.
      Shares account is the account that makes you a member and a shareholder in the credit union
