   “A Credit Union is not an ordinary financial concern, seeking to enrich its members at the expense of the general public.

   Neither is it a Loan Company, seeking to make a profit at the expense of the unfortunates…

   The Credit Union is nothing of the kind; it is the expression in the field of economics of a high social ideal.”

 Alphonse Desjardins
(Mayor of Montreal 1893)
