He is an example of the family, pride and unity that exist within the Longshore community. The Longshore community have earned certain privileges; one being the right to purchase a car without being hassled and haggled.
Recently, September 23rd to be exact, Monet attended our Three Day Auto Event to purchase a new car. The “only reason I considered buying a car was because the credit union was here”, stated Monet when asked. The support of our members is of utmost importance to ILWU Credit Union.
“I only get loans from [ILWU Credit Union]”, Monet told us, “you guys gave me a loan when nobody else would”.
