1. Texas Business Lenders Group is a CUSO. What’s that?

A: CUSO stands for a credit union service organization. Credit unions invest capital and resources in CUSOs as a collaborative effort to provide additional services to their members. While legally independent from their credit union owners, CUSOs are essentially extensions of their credit unions.

2. Are non-members able to borrow from TBLG?

A: While Texas Business Lenders Group has the ability to assist non-credit union members, the spirit of our purpose is to dedicate our services to eligible credit union members. Membership eligibility at a credit union may be easier than you think. For your review, we have a list of our participating credit unions on our Home page.

3. Are businesses able to join credit unions?

A: Businesses may become members of most credit unions if they are owned by individuals eligible for membership, or if they are located within 25 miles of a credit union office.

4. In what geographic markets does TBLG make loans?

A: Texas Business Lenders Group primarily focuses on the metropolitan areas served by our credit union owners.

5. What makes a credit union loan better than others
