Wildfire Credit Union Working Hand in Hand with Local Businesses

News Release Date: Apr 16, 2020

Saginaw, MI - Amidst all the challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Wildfire Credit Union has been proactively working with their business members to help them through their ongoing challenges.

With so many local businesses being affected, there has been significant need for payment relief and help navigating the new Payroll Payment Program (PPP). Wildfire’s Business Services team has been able to assist members with both. As of April 16, the credit union has provided payment relief to 50 business members and approximately 100 Payroll Protection Plan applications totaling $12 million.

Between the credit union’s business lending programs and the SBA’s programs being offered, Wildfire plans to continue to assist members through this crisis and into the future.
