What is SoundPound?

We are a network of Greater Manchester loans and savings providers called Credit Unions. We’re taking on national lenders to show you there is an ethical and local alternative that could save you HUNDRED’s of pounds. 

Our goal with SoundPound is to combine our efforts to give Greater Manchester the affordable finance it deserves with our SoundPound loan. 

We want to promote Credit Unions as well as the ethos behind it- people helping people. High street lenders will be a thing of the past when the credit union revolution takes over. Say goodbye to outrageous APR and hello to an ethical future. 

What is a Credit Union?

Credit Unions are nonprofit, member-owned financial institutions, which offer sustainable, financial services to their members. We’re not in it for the money, so any profits we do make are re-invested back into the credit union and re-distributed to our members as a dividend. Our ethos is built upon a strong sense of community.  

We are local people helping local people to access safer savings and responsible loans.  

We want to show people that we are an ethical and affordable alternative to high-cost lenders. Credit Unions are able to offer the financial services that people need, whilst putting people first, working with people to secure their financial futures.
