Greater Kinston Credit Union

There is a credit union in eastern North Carolina that has worked hard to help people who have historically been left out of traditional banking circles.

But during the economic downturn, the Greater Kinston Credit Union suffered just like many of its members.  Major loans weren’t re-paid and the state placed it under conservatorship.  Today, Greater Kinston has a new manager, is open for business and is making money again.
