In 1931, a group of seventy-five farmers in Wabash County, Indiana joined together to form their own financial cooperative. This group of leaders’ simple vision was to provide savings and dependable loan programs, particularly to farmers, in the area. In keeping with this heritage, Beacon Credit Union has remained a leader in serving the agricultural community.
Currently, Beacon CU is proud to be the largest agricultural lending credit union in the nation. In rural Indiana, where agricultural heritage is still a significant part of the cultural patchwork — from 4-H fairs in the summer to harvest moons in the fall – our communities are about far more than just farming, and so is Beacon Credit Union.
