Financial Services

Our goal at FECC is to effectively educate our community on the importance of financial health in regards to credit, loans, budgeting and savings goals. We aim to equip our community with the knowledge of spending and saving wisely in an effort to create a greater sense of security with respect to personal finances. Being able to assist our community in these areas will help families get on their feet, manage personal savings goals, and support financial prosperity.

Financial literacy is pivotal in being able to lead a comfortable and rewarding life. Knowing how to manage debt or comprise a plan to reach a big savings goal can make achieving landmark goals easier to tackle.

Let us lend a helping hand and guide you towards success.
