Lafayette Federal is committed to bettering the lives of those in need.
For over 85 years, we have sought to provide members with the necessary tools to achieve financial security and independence. From the beginning, we have continued to evolve to keep pace with the changing financial needs of our growing and diverse membership.
We believe everyone deserves a chance at financial success.
By providing $375 million in consumer and mortgage loans to low-income communities for over 20 years, we have remained dedicated to offer funding for life necessities, including housing, vehicles, and credit cards.
Low income shouldn’t disqualify you from obtaining a loan.
At Lafayette Federal, we look at other important factors to help qualify individuals for specific lending programs we offer.

Our members say the nicest things.
I joined LFCU when I was 16 years old as a dependent of a USAID foreign service officer. I opened my first savings account with money earned from part-time jobs. Since then there have been a lot of firsts with Lafayette including my first checking account, car loan and mortgage application. In a relationship that has spanned almost 4 decades, the country and the world, LFCU has supported me and my family with all of our financial needs. Thanks LFCU, I think I’ll be staying for life!
